I adore basil….what an aromatic herb that when combined with just a few other natural ingredients transforms into green goodness!

I have been growing basil in an AeroGarden at my office, but this time I went to my neighborhood Publix to pick up some basil.  I had beautiful lemons from Trader Joe’s in my fridge, so out came the Parmesan, Asiago and Romano cheese mix that I have, with a half cup of extra virgin olive oil, 4 garlic cloves and a dash of salt and black pepper and these ingredients became the awesome goodness of a garlicky-lemony pesto.

So many suggestions…..what to do with pesto?

I covered salmon with it and broiled it to yummy goodness.

It goes great with fresh French bread.

You can dip veggies into it too! The options are limitless to what you can do with pesto!
