“I read the ingredients on the container, read it twice and read it a third time: no basil, no nuts. Copycat version of Cibo Natural's Pesto from Seattle, Washington. Serving suggestions from the Cibo company: spread for French bread, sandwich condiment, or slather approximately two-three tablespoons pesto on a chicken breast or thigh and bake in oven until chicken is done, add some mayonnaise to the pesto for "instant aioli", etc. Many uses!”
