I tried pesto for the first time and I love it! I bought it in a jar. I would rather have it homemade to eliminate the preservatives but since I'm the only one who's going to eat it I can't see doing that. DH is somewhat allergic to green. I bought a Vegetti, a gadget used to make strands of vegetables, such as zucchini. I cut the zucchini strands, sauted lightly in olive oil and added a couple spoonfuls of the pesto. It was delicious! I'm going to do it again today for lunch. Very light and tasty.
