Pea and Pine Nut Pesto

Isn’t pesto one of those great things to always have on hand in the fridge? I just love a good pesto, and although there are many great versions out there, subtly inserting green peas in one has to be winning, right? This Pea and Pine Nut Pesto tastes fresh and clean, it’s easy to make and it’s so versatile. Try it and let me know what you think.
