Pesto is one condiment that I truly think can transform "blah" to 5 star, drool worthy in minutes.
The flavor. I mean come on...it speaks for itself.
Want a big life hack? Keep this in your freezer and on nights you don't know what to feed your hungry family, have pasta + pesto. They'll love you forever.
