One of the things I like to do for meal prepping is to make sauces at the beginning of the week. I like this because even if I don't know exactly what is on the menu, if I have a delicious sauce in the fridge waiting on me, I can usually creates a yummy dinner in no time! Sauces like my basic basil pesto are one of my staples that I almost always have on hand! When I say basic basil pesto, that is not to take away from how utterly delicious a basic pesto actually can be. What I mean is that it is the most simple form of pesto, a basic formula to build on for any future pesto creations. I love having a batch of this in the fridge or the freezer for pizzas, pastas, sandwiches, eggs, and more and I think you are going to love making a homemade basic basil pesto in your kitchen too!
