Includes the Best Pesto Pasta Recipe Ever
Basil can arguably be one of the best herbs to grow in your home garden. The amazing earthy aroma and sweet taste make it a stable for many dishes. Basil can be used in tomato sauces, teas, on sandwiches, or to make incredible pesto to eat as a dip for your veggies or poured over noodles.
If you have used basil in the past, you might have bought a plant from the store. An organic basil plant can cost anywhere between $4-$6 for just one plant. While that might work if you just use a basil leaf here or there, but what if you are planning to make your own pesto? Just one plant is just not going to cut it. Pesto is so easy and tastes so much better homemade, who wouldn’t want to make their own?
