Elizabeth's Pesto with a Southern Twist


"A delicious pesto with traditional ingredients. This has been booted up with some southern fried kick. You can spray ice cube trays with cooking spray and spoon in pesto, freeze until hard, and store in freezer in a resealable plastic bag."

This is really a delicious version of pesto sauce! I made this recipe as is, I didn't sub any ingredients at all.. & it was great! It took me literally 5 minutes to throw everything in my food ...

Quite delicious! The cayenne pepper gave it a little kick, I think next time I will use red pepper flakes. I am a huge fan of zest and the lemon zest added a nice freshness to the pesto.

amazing! I made the recipe exactly and it's so delicious. My husband and I have been eating this for days, with pasta and on bread. Much better than store bought pesto.

This dish is wonderful for entertaining! Easy to make and the pesto is fantastic with other recipes. Super way to get my meat and potato man to eat something green.
