What is the best way to make a pesto sauce?

Pesto is an Italian sauce that traditionally consists of crushed garlic, pine nuts, and basil leaves.

There are many variations on pesto sauce and people often argue about which ingredients they should include. Some people say that pine nuts should be used while others say that basil leaves should be ground instead of just adding them as a whole leaf.

However, the best way to make pesto sauce is to only include the ingredients you love.

What are the benefits of oven roasting turkey?

Roasting is a cooking technique that has been around for centuries. Roast turkey takes on an enhanced flavor profile.

The turkey can also be stuffed with vegetables, herbs, or other seasonings to make it even more flavorful.

Some of the benefits of oven roasting are:

– Cooks evenly without drying out the meat

– Creates a crispy skin

– Adds moisture to the meat

– Creates intense flavor
