Italian Sauce

Few aromas are better than an Italian sauce simmering on the back burner. Invest a little time in stirring up your own Italian tomato sauce, use some fresh tonight, and freeze the rest for the next meal.

Cilantro Pesto with Almonds

Better Homes and Gardens

Bright and peppery cilantro and parsley are perfectly balanced by tangy white vinegar and rich, warm almonds in this creative twist on the traditional pesto. Almonds, like all nuts, are susceptible to rancidity due to their high fat content. For optimal shelf life, store almonds in a air-tight container in the freezer, for 3-6 months.
