Pesto Bean Dip | Italian Hummus

PESTO BEAN DIP | ITALIAN HUMMUS

This is basically Italian Hummus. Pesto, cannellini beans, and pine nuts. It is a super quick and easy appetizer, especially if you have pesto on hand.  You can also use it as a spread for sandwiches.

Bonus this is a healthier dip and great for veggies trays.  We served ours up with pita chips and red bell pepper strips.
