Freezing Pesto in Single Servings

Here's a great tip for freezing pesto in single servings. You'll have pesto on hand to jazz up just about anything, anytime.

Pesto is one of my favorite ingredients. You can use it to make so many simple flavorful meals. This summer, I grew my first herb garden and I had a huge basil patch. I made pesto, but there was no way that I could use all of that pesto right away. So, what did I do? I froze it in individual portions so all you do is take your fresh pastel and spoon it into a clean ice tube tray in a little individual compartment. You leave a little bit of room for expansion and fill them all up. It's that simple. And what you do is just cover it and pop it in your freezer for a while until it's nice and firm. And then, what I like to do is take the pesto from the frozen state and you might need to use a little spatula or a table knife and it comes out in this nice little hard pieces and you can just pop it into your plastic bags and then I put it back in the freezer and it's ready to go. So, next time you want that fresh summery pesto flavor, just look in your freezer.
