note: I like mine to be a bit more oily if using as a pasta sauce, and generally a bit thicker if using as a spread or dip.
serving recommendations: I enjoy using pesto on zucchini noodles, but can be used as a dipping sauce for vegetables & breads, or as a spread on sandwiches etc. Try adding some mayo to create a yummy dipping sauce for potatos wedges or french fries or add on top of some toast under a fried egg! So many options!!
