You can never go wrong with a classic Pesto Genovese. The traditional combination of basil, Parmesan cheese, pine nuts, and olive oil is hard to beat in its delicious simplicity. However, if you want to mix it up with new herbs and flavors, there's a whole world of other herb pestos that you should add to your repertoire! How about a delicious sun-dried tomato variation? Or one with parsley and grated asiago cheese? There's lots of brilliant new takes on pesto you can try at home. Get creative with your herbs and try some for yourself!
