there are a few decent jarred pestos, but they can be pretty expensive.
Barilla is not the worst I tried, but it's mediocre at best

I'm with you anon, all those fools have never made fresh pesto. Basil is an extremely volatile aromatic, the difference between fresh and jarred is absolutely striking. Not quite as bad as fresh basil vs dried basil (which is truly worthless), but still a huge step down.

>> No.16827973

Grilled cheese with swiss and a bit of garlic powder, trust me.

>> No.16827996

I like to do a pasta salad with pesto, green peas, penne, and Parmesan cheese. Goes really well with bbq

>> No.16828015

Great on sandwiches, put it on the bottom slice of bread, layer the meat over that followed by the cheese. Then put your veg layer, put mayo on top bun. If you need oil and vinegar put those on veg prior to mayo top bun. Pesto on bottom layer enhances the taste of the meat as you chew.

I put some leftover homemade pesto on a pumpkin soup, it was alright

Use it to add flavour to chicken if you are doing a healthy meal prep

I was going to make some fresh pesto until I saw that pine nuts alone were twice the price of a jar of pesto

>> No.16829705

The pine nuts aren't really important, you can use walnuts or almonds and it tastes the same. Fresh basil, fresh garlic, and nice cheese and olive oil will make a big difference, though.

>The pine nuts aren't really important,
how are you making fun of people for eating jarred pesto when you apparently have no tastebuds whatsoever? if you can't tell the difference between pesto with pine nuts and pesto with fucking ALMONDS for christ's sake, the only thing you must be tasting is a feeling of unwarranted superiority.

>> No.16832859

Either he has terminal Corona or it's a troll. I'd buy that the pine nuts could be replaced with something, but fucking almonds? That's a radical substitution.

>> No.16832873

I had an airline meal that was remarkably good, it was some kind of pesto-tomato sauce and chicken. Like Chicken Parm but with pesto tomato sauce.

back to plebbit

>> No.16832946

Yeah that's fair, you can taste the difference for sure, but I really don't think the pine nuts are central to the pesto's flavor. Almonds totally work, and the basil, garlic, parmesan, and olive oil are IMO stronger flavors in the final product than the pine nuts. I probably wouldn't do, like, peanuts - that'd be quite the departure - but then again I haven't tried it. I do variations on pesto pretty frequently, you can add mint, pepper, butter, lemon, different nuts (you can toast them too), go crazy. With a little trial and error it's really flexible, and the nuts are probably the most flexible part.

IMO what I want out of a pesto is the strong herbal / aromatic flavor and smell of basil, a noticeable hit of that raw garlic spiciness, and a foundation of parmesan (often pecorino romano too) and a really nice olive oil. Everything else can change.
