An italian kitchen is incomplete without a jar of pesto. A lip-smacking combination of basil, cheese and nuts, pesto serves as a tasteful dressing for many a preparation, from pastas and salads to even stuffed bread rolls. Although commonly available at stores these days, classic italian pesto made at home is certainly a notch above these.

Nothing like this good pesto sauce for my whole wheat pasta i cook. To make it healthier, i skip the cheese and it still tastes good.
