Pesto Is The Besto

Ethan always says, "pesto is the besto" and I couldn't agree more.

Really.  My mom bought this big jar of pesto from Costco and I have had the most wonderful time with that jar because pesto creates the most delicious food in the world!

In celebration of pesto, I thought I would share with you guys some different ways that I use it.

Pesto pasta
I really like this recipe for creamy pesto pasta.  Ethan, Kylee, and I made it a couple of months ago and I've also made it for my family.  Basically everyone loves it!  Another great pesto pasta is just pasta with a bunch of pesto on it.  That is super delicious.

Pesto butter
Last night Jeff and I made some pesto butter.  It was just 3 tbsp. of pesto and 2 tbsp. of softened butter. We put it on toast and it was the most delicious thing ever!  I don't know what else it would be good on, but I'm sure the possibilities are endless.

Pesto grilled cheese sandwiches
I like to put pesto on one of the pieces of bread before I put the cheese and other piece of bread on.  Then I cook it just like any other grilled cheese sandwich!  And it tastes super good...

Pesto tomato soup
I like to put a spoonful of pesto into my plain tomato soup.  It adds pizazz and is just an easy way to make soup more interesting.

So yup.  If you have any other pesto ideas, please let me know!
