I’m not sure there is anything as easy as Basil Pesto that packs as much flavor. Moreover, I’m not sure there is anything so easy and so flavorful that can create so many other delicious creations!
A weeknight staple around my house is Chicken Pesto Pasta (pictured, top of post). Use grilled shrimp instead of chicken and you have a “date night” quality meal. Use Basil Pesto on pizza, special Caprese Appetizers or to make an Easy Basil Mayonnaise.

Watch How to Make Basil Pesto and tell me, what’s your go-to easy “date night” meal?
