Cooking with Pesto
Pizza Sauce 
Pesto is a wonderful departure to the traditional pizza sauce.  Slather enough to coat pizza dough, add toppings and eat.

Pasta with Pesto
Basil Pesto: Cook ½ or 1 pound of pasta to al dente.  While the pasta is still hot, add two tablespoons of basil pesto, two tablespoons of salted butter or olive oil, heavy cream or milk (optional) to creamy consistency. Add Parmesan cheese and serve.

Party Favorite
Man what a hit at parties.  This is a versatile pesto with many different applications in the kitchen. 

Slice open a fresh baked French Bread loaf, spread on liberally Artichoke Pesto and butter. Run through your oven, moments later you will have a great garlicky, tasty treat!

Use on sandwiches as a extra zing as a condiment, heap on pasta with some butter and cream, beautiful with butter heated and as a topping on most fish, sparingly dab some over most of your soft cheeses like mozzarella/brie/goat cheese/etc..., and many more applications that we are sure you will discover.
