I know, pesto is a summer thing, right? So why am I sharing My Favorite Low-Carb Recipes with Pesto just when basil plants are showing up in the stores. There’s a reason, I promise!
You see, for many years now I’ve been growing basil every summer and making Basil Pesto with Lemon and freezing it. And recently I got some lovely basil plants at the grocery store, and when I got home with them I realized I had a lot of these packets of frozen pesto in the freezer, and I better start cooking with pesto, ASAP!So that’s the reason I had pesto on the brain and decided to feature My Favorite Low-Carb Recipes with Pesto for this week’s edition of Low-Carb Recipe Love.
And if you don’t have pesto in the freezer, you can use my favorite purchased pesto to try these amazing recipes with pesto.
