Kirkland Signature Basil Pesto sauce is a fan favorite, and that beautiful fresh green just calls to you when you walk by doesn’t it? Have you ever wondered what exactly you can actually make with Costco Pesto Sauce? If you’re new to pesto, it is an easy shortcut to make tons of appetizers and meals! Basil is a versatile herb, it has tons of flavor but at the same time it’s not spicy at all, thus even picky palettes often devour it (like those picky kids!)! While it’s pretty straightorward to make pesto fresh at home, to actually make yourself you need fresh basil and pine nuts (which many of don’t keep on hand) and you’ll need a food processor (is it just me? I despise cleaning the million parts of the food processor!) and by the time you finish that you’ve still go to make the actual thing it’s going to go with….too much work for a weeknight for sure! Kirkland Signature Pesto is delish right out of the jar, it doesn’t overpower foods and we have tons of easy and quick ways you can prepare a wide variety of foods using it.
