Traditional pesto is a sauce made with fresh basil leaves, garlic, pine nuts, and dry aged cheese held together by olive oil. But the beauty of pesto is that it can be that plus so much more. It's a versatile sauce that can adapt to the flavors you like or whatever is sitting in your fridge and cupboard at the moment. Have oregano instead of basil? Throw it in there. Have walnuts instead of pine nuts, that's fine too!
Here's a fun variation on pesto that celebrates the flavor of oregano and the versatility of this tasty Italian sauce.
