Green and Red Pesto

We eat pesto almost with everything. It is definately one of our favorite sauces. 

Red pesto is  little bit less popular than the the green one but it is super tasty as well! You can eat both on breads, toasts, wraps, and as sauce for a lot of things. Also it is really nice with chicken from the oven or just as a classic pasta pesto!
