This tasty pesto can come in handy for pastas and goes well with fusilli. When frozen, the pesto can last a long time. After the pesto is done, keep in single serving or double serving containers to store in the freezer. In this way, the portions can be easily retrieved and defrosted for the desired number of servings. Generally, one and a half tablespoons of pesto is sufficient for one plate of pasta.
