Roasted Red Pepper Pesto

Roasted Red Pepper Pesto. YESS.  You Heard me.  Gimme ALLLL the Pesto.

Making my own Pesto has become one of the greatest things ever, and i’m fairly certain I will never buy store bought pesto again.  Not that you can’t get absolutely delicious store bought pesto (I promise I wont judge you if you will never NOT buy store bought pesto), but the homemade stuff is not only 100 times more fresh- it’s also soo easy!  It seriously takes less than 10 minutes and can be used in so many different things.

Roasted Red Pepper Pesto

I love making a batch on Sunday or Monday, and storing in the fridge for the week.  That way, you can whip it out for a quick weeknight pasta dish, put it on toast with eggs in the morning, or even top grilled meats and veggies.  It jazzes up the meal in an instant, and like I said, the possibilities are endless. You can put it in pastas, toast, pizzas, grilled meats, fish, veggies, eggs, cheese, etc. etc. etc.

Roasted Red Pepper Pesto

If you’ve never made your own pesto, I totally get it.  It sounds a little intimidating, but just trust me on this one and give it a whirl.  You will thank me later!
