Pesto doesn't have to be teamed with pasta! I love pesto but to be honest im not a massive fan of pasta, so here are 5 way I enjoy pesto without pasta. 1. Mix It Into Dips Mix a little pesto in with live natural yogurt or sour cream, 2. Drizzle over salads Thinned with a little more oil and drizzle over for summer salads. 3. Use on bread instead of butter Using pesto instead of butter an entirely different layer of flavor to sandwiches or toast! 4. Dress vegetables Instead of butter or gravy, use a tablespoon of pesto to garnish your vegetables. 5. Smear on chicken Pop in the oven and bake for a delicious moist chicken!
