I absolutely love adding sauces to any of my meals and I’ve been wanting to make a delicious pesto sauce. This one in particular is dairy free, but feel free to add shredded mozzarella in there if you’d like! Add this to your pastas, salads, sandwiches.. you name it! I’ve put it in all my meals since I made it.
