For this round-up of My Favorite Low-Carb Recipes with Pesto I’m revisiting my love for basil pesto! Of course my love for pesto is well-documented on this blog, and it’s absolutely one of my favorite sauces to use in cooking. I plant basil and also and grow it in my kitchen window every summer, and I use the basil to make my favorite Basil Pesto with Lemon, which I freeze in ice cube trays and then seal the cubes in bags with the FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer.

And I love to pull a few of those pesto cubes out of the freezer and use them to give delicious basil flavor to dishes any time of year, which is why you’ll find a few recipes using the oven in this collection of favorite low-carb recipes with pesto. You can pin those for winter if it’s too hot for oven cooking where you are. But please, make some homemade pesto while fresh basil is plentiful! Or if homemade pesto is just not happening at your house, you can definitely use my favorite purchased pesto to try these amazing recipes with pesto. And basil pesto is very low in carbs, so enjoy.
