Finally- a delicious simply organic pesto mix that's dairy free and organic! Just add water and oil, and toss with your favorite pasta for a quick, satisfying meal. Each .53 oz pack is enough for 8 oz. of pasta. $2.49 each.
I liked this mix so much so that I just ordered another packet. It makes too much for one person so I use only half the packet at a time. It tastes great on potatoes or pasta or any good veggies. The price is nice as well.
I usually make a pesto recipe that takes four million pounds of basil and ends up costing a small fortune. This little package provides enough coverage for an entire bag of pasta. It's tasty, flavorful, and very inexpensive. Add a tiny bit of salt to make the pesto really pop. Buy it! It rocks.
I followed the directions on the package, but I was wary of adding the full amount of oil. It doesn't seem like much basil compared to the oil, but it's the right proportion for a pasta dressing. However, for actual pesto (thicker), you'll want to add less. It made enough pesto sauce for 8 oz of pasta, and it's fairly comparable to making some fresh pesto.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this pesto mix!! It has made my homemade vegan Fettucini Alfredo dish complete! I saute a couple tbsp. of minced garlic in some olive oil, add 1 can of coconut milk and a few dashes of nutmeg & black pepper (don't be shy), then a package of this Sweet Basil Pesto mix, stir and cook on med-low for a few minutes. Pour over cooked pasta, and MMMMMMMMMMMM!!! You will fool ALL! No one will believe it's vegan...only you will know... ,-)
