Kitchen Staple: Basil Pesto

by Marion Blount | February 16, 2017 | 0 Comments

A kitchen staple is something that you can't live without in your kitchen. Basil Pesto is one of those products that I "have to have". In our kitchen we use it for pizzas, pastas, sandwich spreads (it pairs well with aged balsamic) and bruschetta. 

While I try to make it from scratch, it's great to have some in a jar ready to go. This little jar of Pesto alla Genovese packs a lot of flavor and is about as authentic as it gets. What other kitchen staples or must-haves do you keep in your pantry?
