Basil Pesto Pasta Salad

Has your summer extended into autumn, too? I was trimming my basil plants tonight, because they are still going gangbusters. A summer with an abundance of basil and only three tomatoes... Go figure. Anyhow, I need to use the basil while I still can, so I am planning to make a basil version of this pesto pasta that I so love.

I wonder if it is an option to freeze basil for future use?... Seems like it is not.... Do you know?

  1. I freeze most of my basil and only dry a small amount of it. I bring it in, wash and pat dry, chop it up and toss it in a bag and stuff it in the freezer. Sometimes I have to smack the bag around to use it later but I have found that using the frozen makes whatever I am making taste like I used fresh.
