Pesto Infused Oil Recipe

Pesto is a classic Italian condiment that goes great with anything from pasta to meat to fish. In this recipe I infuse olive oil with the flavors of pesto. The flavorful oil can then be drizzled on various dishes to help finish them off. This process works well for many different types of oil and nut-based sauces.
