Pesto is not only great to have on hand for quick pastas, soups and sandwiches, but it's also delicious with scrambled eggs or tofu and whole-grain toast. Use it immediately, store in the fridge for up to 
3 days, or freeze it for future enjoyment. It is a clever way to use up all your garden-fresh herbs that are in abundance right now.
