PESTO SAUCE

The Cooking Channel star offers his take on the Italian classic. ‘It’s mouthwatering and you can put it on everything,’ he says

CHILI PESTO

Makes 2 cups

2 cups lightly packed fresh basil leaves, washed and dried

1 cup Serrano peppers (about 10), stemmed

2 garlic cloves

1 cup sun-dried tomatoes (not oil-packed)

1 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Place first 4 ingredients on a cutting board or in food processor fitted with steel blade. Chop or process until well combined but not pureed. Place mixture in a jar. Pour in olive oil and stir. Cover and store in fridge for up to three weeks.

SPICE UP HOT DOGS

“The sun-dried tomatoes serve as a stand-in for ketchup,” says Rocco.

GIVE YOUR BURGER A GOURMET TWIST

TRY IT ON NACHOS

“Go heavier on the basil to get a more earthy flavor that’s closer to guacamole but less fattening,” suggests Rocco.
