Homemade Basil Pesto | Recipe Treasure

Keeping a jar of homemade basil pesto within reach has its own perks. While it feels yummy to this Italian sauce by the spoonful, it can also turn any dish into a culinary beauty. Toss it with pasta, slather it on sandwiches or simply serve it as a dip with crackers, basil pesto comes out as clear winner. Though I stuck to the classic recipe, you may switch the Parmesan with creamier ricotta cheese or add cilantro leaves for aromatic whiff. Each time basil pesto will shine; no contest!
