Recipe

There are certain things I always like to have in my freezer for quick meals when I need them. The first is a great homemade marinara sauce, usually with meatballs that can be quickly paired with pasta, spaghetti squash, or used for sandwiches or for quick stuffed peppers. The second is a homemade soup, usually chili, that can be used for lunches or dinner paired with a simple salad. The third is a breakfast option – like these frozen breakfast quesadillas or DIY Egg McMuffins. Last on the list is today’s recipe for skinny pesto. I use it for pastas, simple stirfrys, homemade pizzas, sandwiches, baked potatoes, baked chicken, and more. I always have at least two or three containers frozen and ready to go. I recommend doubling or tripling the recipe and storing it for when you need some quick recipe inspiration. Want to use it right away? Consider this delicious Zucchini Pesto Pasta!
