Cashew Pesto

Cashew Pesto, for me the creamier family member of pesto made with almonds.

Cashew Pesto is divine stirred into a bowl of steaming hot pasta or the success to a really delicious sandwich! I know it may seems to you that it is mind over matter which nuts you are using, cashews are better in my humble opinion. This Cashew Pesto is buttery, nuttier and simply just better. I find myself slipping into the kitchen and with a teaspoon working my way through the jar with the Cashew Pesto. Chicken breasts, stuffed with cashew pesto and wrapped in parma ham is seriously easy to make, and yet it is a meal for a very posh crowd.

Make this cashew pesto the star in your kitchen today!
