Best Red Pesto Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This is a fantastic Pesto recipe, one that I make all the time....I usually make lots, and store in my freezer in icecube containers, so I have it ready to add to pasta recipes....when added to any tomato sauce, it seems to always taste better.

Great recipe! My husband made it and said he needed to add more oil as it seemed thick. We used it on chicken wrapped in foil on BBQ. Will make again!
