15-Year-Old Pesto Sauce

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars
17

"I first tried pesto in a restaurant about 15 years ago and asked the chef what was in it. I love keeping my own jar of this on hand as it yields enough for a pound of pasta and is wonderful drizzled over tomatoes, boiled potatoes, or Italian bread."
