An original idea to make a different use of your pesto is to make it into a dip.  This recipe of Greek Yoghurt, Feta and Pesto makes a delicious Dip to serve as a snack with Greek pita chips or even mixed in your pasta.

So, what did I do with all this wonderful stuff?

I pound some of the herbs and spices, added some Italian extra virgin olive oil on the Greek Pita bread, seasoned them with coarse sea salt and the pounded Italian seasoning and made some Greek pita chips.

I served the pita chips as an appetizer with the  Greek Yoghurt, Feta and Pesto Dip (you will find the recipe at the end) and some Salame, Italian Olives and Tarallini, accompanied by some wine.

For the main dish, I cooked the whole package of linguine in salted water for ten minutes and made two kinds of pasta.

Linguine with Salame and Pesto, Yoghurt and Greek Feta

The second pasta dish was made with the other half of the linguine, the remaining half salame and half of the Greek Yoghurt, Feta and Pesto Dip.

I added a raw egg to the dip which I mixed to make the dip thinner and when I added the pasta in the frying pan, I added the dip as well as some pasta water and cooked it for 1 more minute.
