Ingredients for Pesto Mozzarella Pearls
Your ingredient list is super simple!
- Mozzarella pearls
- Canned or fresh pesto
Pesto is traditionally made from pine nuts, garlic, salt, basil and a hard cheese like parmesan.
Looking at the pesto ingredient list, there is no way this is nut free right? Wrong! There are so many different variations of nut free pesto on the market now that you can easily enjoy pesto if you have a nut allergy!
If you have stomach upset, garlic isn't your friend, right? So are there any good garlic free pesto sauces out there? Yes!
But you're going to have to make it. At least at this point and time. There isn't a good garlic free pesto on the market to purchase.
