Last year, I planted some spicy oregano in my garden. I didn’t touch it after planting last season, but this year it grew so huge it was taking over my garden box, so I decided to cut the whole thing down and make a big batch of pesto with the harvest.

This recipe is delicious and doesn’t last long at my house. We eat it on eggs, pasta, pizza, potatoes, and even grilled cheese sandwiches. It’s just as good, (if not better) than your typical basil pesto, and the perfect solution for harvesting your gigantic oregano plant.
