This is a fantastic pesto, and like the others on this website (basil, dill, arugula, etc.), it is so versatile. You can use it on pizzas or as a sauce for pasta. It goes great on sandwiches and I even flavor mashed potatoes with it. You can use roasted bell peppers from a jar if you don't have time to roast the peppers yourself, just make sure to purchase roasted peppers that are not packed in oil.
