serving idea
Stir pesto into cooked vegetables, soups and rice dishes. Brush on grilled chicken breasts or fish fillets. Cover pizza base with pesto and add your favourite toppings. Spread on slices of grilled baguette rubbed with fresh garlic. Create a tasty sandwich using layers of cream cheese, pesto and rocket. Combine pesto with equal parts mayonnaise and plain yogurt for a raw vegetable dip or to sauce poached fish or chicken. Spoon over your favourite bbq items as a side dressing.

Dried tomatoes and cayenne give this pesto a very deep, rich flavour with just enough bite to get your attention.
