In the height of summer, there's nothing better than having a huge reserve of basil pesto. With a good pesto recipe, every meal is figured out. If you have pasta on hand, top it with pesto. A slice of crusty bread, smear it with pesto. Just a spoon and a jar of pesto can make a great snack too. (It's a good thing pesto is good for our health.)
But just because summer (and its plethora of basil) has come to an end, that doesn't mean we can't keep whipping up pesto recipes; it just means we have to get a little more creative. So dry your pesto-missing eyes and give pesto a try with other greens. Check out the recipes in the slideshow below.
