It's just my husband and I, so every time I would make a batch of pesto, half of it would go bad. Here's a way to freeze your pesto...the trick is to not add the cheese before freezing.
- Put basil, oil, pine nuts, garlic and salt into a blender or food processor. Process until smooth. Makes 2 cups of sauce.
- Spoon sauce into ice cube tray. Put in a freezer bag and freeze.
- To use, take out as many cubes as desired and microwave or leave out at room temperature until thawed.
- When using the sauce, add about 1 tbsp of pecorino romano (more or less, depending on ice cube size and your taste) for each ice cube you use.
