Fall is in the air but I have leftover pesto.............

Brrr it's chilly here this morning! I have some pesto left over I need to use tonight. But I want to cook something in the oven. What can I cook in the oven to go with the pesto(a/c was on Sat., trying to avoid turning on the furnace)? Thanks!

      Roast potatoes, or any other veggies on hand, toss with pesto. Toast rounds of good bread in the oven, top with pesto. Use on a pizza.

        Freeze your pesto--you'll be very grateful for it come Feb.--and cook what you feel like.
