Pesto has as many uses as it does variations. This basic basil version can brighten up any number of things, from grilled corn to scrambled eggs, or use it as a pizza sauce, like on our asparagus and goat cheese grilled pizza.
Game plan: The pesto can be made up to 3 days in advance. To store, place it in a container and press plastic wrap on top of the pesto so that it’s touching the surface. Cover with a lid or another piece of plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use. Or freeze up to 1 month.
