Pesto-Chango: Saucy Meals with Simple Homemade Pesto

Traditional homemade pine nut and basil pesto sauce has been a staple of Italian cooking for ages! In the old days, it would be made in an authentic mortar and pestle by hand and stored in glass jars for a week of flavorful pesto pastas and other delicious meals. Nowadays, there are many different varieties of pesto from vegan-ized versions to kinds made from sun-dried tomatoes and cilantro. Try something off the beaten path or stick with the awesome traditions; either way, you won’t be disappointed.
