Fresh and simple homemade nut free pesto. Store the pesto in jar in the fridge to keep on hand for an easy flavor boost to any meal. Basil nut free pesto goes perfect with any chicken, beef, fish or vegetables. I love to keep it on hand as a side dipping sauce for sandwiches, bread, pizza & potatoes.
