This sauce freezes well, and is a good standby for the freezer. You can use it in many ways, as a relish for fish or chicken, to flavor soups, or as a sauce for pasta.
If you use it as a pasta sauce, bring it to room temperature if frozen. Put 2 tablespoons per person (or to taste) in the bottom of a large pasta bowl. Mix with 2 teaspoons of freshly grated Parmesan cheese per person. Cook and drain the pasta reserving 1 cup of the pasta water. Stir in a little of the pasta water into the pesto and pile the hot pasta on top. Quickly toss together until the pasta is coated with pesto. Moisten with a little more of the pasta water if it seems too dry.
