I’m pregnant and literally want to eat pesto on everything. All the time. Toast, crackers, chocolate, granola, (to quote the young’uns) pesto is life. I have a DH who is sick of pesto and a pizza about the go in the oven that I cannot (will not) eat unless pesto is somehow involved. Can I just slather/dollop some pesto on my (two thirds) half or will it be a blackened blob that tastes vaguely of basil? Help me incorporate more pesto into my meal without inflicting it on DH who turns pesto green at the mere mention of yet more pesto...

Use it like a condiment, put a blob on your plate and dunk.
Then Pesto Hell won't be inflicted on your DH. wine

I don't know... Pizzas sometimes have pesto cooked onto them. Have you tried red pesto, Op?

I have and it’s just not up there with the green. Condiment is a good call!

I ate it straight out of the jar in my last pregnancy. Haven't touched it since!

I put pesto on my pizza and I’m not mad for it. It won’t burn. It’s full of oil and cheese.

I mix pesto with olive oil and drizzle it on the pizza when it comes out of the oven.

Pesto is fab in pizza!

Success! Eating almost an entire jar of pesto disguised as condiment for pizza, potatoes and now poppadoms...DH looking vaguely green but at least he doesn’t have to eat it!

I had the same craving for a while when pregnant. M and s do a lovely pesto mayonnaise that hit the spot nicely and could be squirted on anything wink

Red pesto is the work of the devil.

Wtf are you doing eating jarred pesto, anyway, woman?? thlenvy (not envy). Make yourself a big batch of fresh - YUM.

I am not pregnant and love pesto. I make salad dressing by shaking up olive oil with the last scrapings of a jar. Its good on top of tuna steaks too.
