Awhile back, our local Aldi had jars of pesto on sale for $1 a jar. Wow! So we got two. One has lasted a really long time.
I also had leftover olives and mushrooms from last week's homemade pizza. So I cooked up some noodles, then heated a few scoops of pesto with the mushrooms and olives, and then stirred it into the noodles. Add parmesan and mozzarella and it is a fantastic easy dish. Tastes like it was out of a restaurant.
Wish I had pictures but we ate it all up!
