Uses for Pesto: Part 1

These aren't recipes. Too easy, too much room for experimentation.
1. Alfredo noodles done al dente, with a few tablespoons of pesto mixed in. No meat need apply.

2. Good quality crusty bread-French, Italian, or sub sandwich bread. Spread one side thickly with pesto, then top with good mozarella. The kind you slice yourself, that comes in globes, not bricks. Slice tomatoes thinly, place on other side. Sprinkle tomatoes with salt and pepper. Bring two sides together. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap or parchment paper. Weight down sandwich for 10 minutes, or let it sit for an hour. Unwrap and eat.
