Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Serving Suggestion
Serve with hot cooked couscous and grilled fresh vegetables, such as quartered red peppers, sliced zucchini and/or sliced portobello mushrooms.
Creative Leftovers
Refrigerate any leftover grilled chicken. Slice, then use to make sandwiches with sliced roasted red peppers and crusty Italian bread.
For a spicy twist, substitute arugula leaves for the baby spinach.
How to Store
Store spinach pesto in tightly covered container in refrigerator up to 5 days. Or for longer storage, freeze up to 2 months; thaw in refrigerator before using.
