pesto 1024x1024 SAGE & WALNUT PESTOI usually have a lot of fresh herbs in my fridge, but often don’t have the time to finish them before they go bad. In those cases I make pesto, which is an excellent way to preserve herbs while making an excellent spread for a sandwich or sauce for pasta.

I recently found myself with a big bunch of sage that I bought by accident, and a little leftover parsley and mint, so I made pesto. I used walnuts instead of the traditional (and more expensive) pine nuts, as they go really well with sage.sage1 1024x682 SAGE & WALNUT PESTO
