Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
A great way to make a large batch like this without letting any of it go bad is to freeze single-serving sizes. Line an ice cube tray with plastic wrap and spoon pesto into each hole. Place the ice cube tray in the freezer until the pesto is frozen, or hard to the touch. Use the plastic wrap to pop the pesto out of the ice cube tray and place in a freezer-safe bag or container to pull out cubes whenever you need it. A serving of pesto is usually 1-2 cubes/tablespoons.
