Basil Pesto Sauce

There are so many ways to enjoy basil pesto sauce. It is perfect for dipping bread, works great as salad dressing, pasta or pizza sauce, or pesto butter. Toss some cooked chicken with it to give a salad or a wrap some extra kick. Sky is a limit.

Already pre-made pesto sauces from the store are an option too, however nothing beats freshly homemade one.

And it is pretty easy to do too: just plug all ingredients into a blender, chop until smooth and then mix cheese in.

Pecorino cheese may be hard to find, using shredded parmesan should work as well.
