 So i made it myself tonight with basil from my garden. Very proud of myself. Its going in a Pesto Pasta dish tomorrow night. Anyways, my recipe only calls for a cup and i think i have a little more than a cup. Maybe like a cup and a half. What can i do with the rest??

I think it should keep in the fridge for a while. You could make a pesto pizza.

 Awesome that you made your own pesto from basil that you grew yourself!!!!

You could use the rest as a sandwich spread.

You can make pesto pinwheels. Use a sheet of puff pastry, spread it all over and roll up, jelly roll style, slice Into 1/2 inch rounds and bake in oven until golden. You can add other things to the filling -- like cooked, chopped up chicken or some roasted red peppers, too. They make a nice appetizer or a great snack!

Chicken and cheese. You use pesto for the sauce with roasted garlic. Then top with mizz cheese and the chicken. I posted it on her so you can search for it

 Split a loaf of French bread and brush with pesto. Top with capicola, shredded mozzarella and grated parmesan. Broil until the cheese melts.

 Grill or steam corn, then brush with Pesto Butter (Mash 3/4 cup pesto into 4 tablespoons softened butter) Sprinkle with parmesan.
