Sometimes accidents happen. And sometimes they happen to be happy accidents.
I started out making pesto but quickly ran out basil to make a decent sized batch so I decided I would continue adding ingredients until I was happy with the result. My regular pesto turned into a pesto aioli and I’ve been putting it on everything!
