Top Tips

Roasted red pepper pesto works well with various foods and dishes, my top two ways to use it is with pasta (which I garnish with fresh basil as pictured), and pesto baked cod.

If you enjoy a bit of a kick add some fresh chilli when blending the ingredients, chilli flakes also work just as well.
