Pesto Sauce

Pesto is our go-to pasta sauce all year round—but especially in the summertime when fresh basil is abundant. The nutty sauce is perfect for hearty winter pastas, but its herb-y brightness (and vibrant color) makes it a welcome addition to summer dishes as well. There are plenty of ways to riff on this classic sauce—try using other greens and herbs like spinach, kale, parsley or mint, and swap pine nuts for pistachios, hazelnuts or almonds. We love to add pesto to sandwiches, use it as a marinade for fish and stir it into creamy dips. Whether you’re looking for a new twist on pesto sauce or want a super classic version, Food & Wine has a recipe for every occasion.
