Sometimes less is more in cooking, including this easy 5 ingredient salt-free pesto recipe. Using a food processor this recipe can be made in under 10 minutes. I grow lots of basil and always end up with too much. The solution? I make tons of pesto and store it in the freezer until I need it! Pesto goes great with pasta dishes, risotto, sandwiches and more.
