After a few attempts at making homemade basil pesto and being quite pricey too, I decided to just buy a jar of Trader Joe`s pre made Pesto alla Genovese Basil Pesto 6.7 oz for $2.49! A pack of organic basil costs already $3 bucks, not including the rest of the ingredients to make pesto! I fell in love with pesto when I had BJ`s Restaurant & Brewhouse mini bruschetta with their pesto sauce, it`s delicious! I topped a little bit of basil pesto on my bruschetta. You can make bruschetta many different ways and today I decided to use flaxseed ciabetta bread from Trader Joe`s. This bread not only smells good but I love how it`s crispy on the outer and soft inside. I rubbed garlic on the bread and then used mozzarella cheese and diced tomatoes on top.
Thoughts on the pesto? Obviously not the same as BJ`s and not as delicious but it works plus affordable and isn`t time consuming. Not only can you use the pesto for bruschetta, you can toss with hot pasta, spread on pizza, crackers or even in soup!
Are you a fan of Basil Pesto? What do you generally eat pesto with? I plan on making pesto pasta sometime!
