Instant quick, tasty meal - just add pasta of choice or availability.

I used to eat turkey sandwiches with Pesto Mayo almost everyday for lunch.

Basil Pesto is the Shiznit. Your pasta needs some oven roasted tomato's and grilled chicken to really make it a meal though, and top it with some Parmesan cheese.

Other kinds of pesto however, like cilantro or parsley pesto, are not even close to being the shiznit. They are teh wrong. I used to have to make a salad at work with parsley pesto, and it was kinda lame.

At the height of summer if we have a good crop of basil going, I make up a bunch and serve it up with pasta. Heavenly!

helllllllz yeah.

one of my favorite dishes to make (and eat) is a creamy pesto with shrimps. make the pesto early in the day, or a day ahead. boil shrimps. Throw in ice water. Begin boiling cavatappi. In a hot skillet add pesto and sundried toms. Add white wine and cream. When pasta is near complete, shell shrimp and toss in sauce. Add some butter drain and add pasta. Toss. Top with roasted pine nuts, parm, and sundried toms.

The Kid loves halping make the pesto. And he really likes black olives in the pasta as well.
