    This light and creamy pesto will go great with any pasta, on top of breaded and fried eggplant, grilled chicken, or even on top of salmon! It tastes great warmed up or even cold the next day. I've used all sweet basil, and I've used a mixture of sweet basil, lemon basil, and lime basil. You can also add a serrano pepper for extra kick! Turns out great every time!
