How to enjoy the pesto cream sauce?
While you whip the sauce, you need to take care that you must not directly cook the sauce. Cooking may cause the pesto sauce to lose some of its very fresh flavors. So when adding it to recipes, you should wait for your dish to cool down at room temperature. Adding it to very hot food will affect the flavor.
What to serve with Pesto Cream Sauce?
As a Dip:
The vibrant pesto cream sauce is a perfect dip that goes best with different vegetables, tortilla chips, pita, crackers, or baguette slices.
This is the most obvious use for which you may be whipping this sauce at home. Pesto makes an excellent flavoring for any kind of pasta. The creamy richness of pesto sauce makes pasta even more compelling. Plus, it is very convenient to have an already prepared bottle of pesto cream sauce lying in your refrigerator.

Is the Pesto Cream Sauce gluten-free and keto-friendly?
The pesto cream sauce is gluten-free unless you drizzle it on your pasta and noodles. Choose your favorite gluten-free pasta and enjoy.
Our pesto cream sauce is an ideal recipe for keto dieters, given that they combine it with carb-free foods. The sauce itself contains negligible carbohydrates. However, the sauce is rich in fats from the heavy cream and olive oil. The overall calorie content per serving is reduced when the sauce is aerated in the Galaxy Gas Whipped Cream Dispenser.
How long does the sauce last in a fridge?
You can store the homemade pesto cream sauce in an airtight sterilized jar for about five days in the refrigerator. For the best taste and fresh aromas, whip the sauce fresh and serve immediately. However, you should not freeze the pesto cream sauce as the cream will lose its texture after thawing.
