Recipe of the Day: Day 23, Classic Basil Pesto

Friday, December 23, 2016

Because it’s GREEN (you know, for Christmas?!), AND I love it, I figured we’d feature this basil pesto sauce from yet one more Chicagogrammer on the Recipe Countdown! I truly can’t believe I’ve blogged for 23 days straight, and so far I’ve only made one of these recipes. Hint: it was a dip. Leave me a comment if you know which one it was. But back to pesto! This classic recipe comes to us from Kelly of Chicago Supper Club, and it looks fantastic. Man I love pesto.
