Who is the besto? Pesto is the besto. Our friend, Jamie Milne from @everythingdelish, took her own spin on the ever-popular feta baked pasta from TikTok with the addition of homemade pesto, made using fragrant and fresh basil. This dish makes a perfect leftover lunch if you can’t finish the rest-o.
