Traditional Pesto Sauce

Since going gluten free, I have become a lot more creative in the kitchen in order to ensure I don’t miss out on some of my favourite foods, dishes and sauces – including this traditional pesto sauce.

One of my favourite ways to enjoy this traditional pesto sauce is with chicken and spaghetti squash.

You can also add pesto sauce to eggs, fish, chicken, and so many different vegetables. It goes great with a variety of whole foods.
