Basil Mint Pesto

Submitted by: CHEFGLORIA1030

Introduction

The nutritional yeast makes this pesto creamy. Serve over pasta and vegetables or spread on some Italian bread and toast it.

Tips: To store pesto long-term, store it in an ice cube tray in the freezer. Every time you want to use some, just thaw a pesto ice cube.

This is not my original recipe... I needed the nutrition for it.
