Store in a mason jar and freeze, the pesto sauce freezes well and can last well over 6 months, I normally place plastic wrap over the top of the pesto sauce before I seal it to freeze. When I am ready to use I Just take the jar out of the freezer and set it on the counter until it soften some and I am able to spoon out what I need to use. You can also fill an ice tray with the pesto sauce and freeze until ready to use.
*I add this sauce to pasta, rice, and roasted potatoes just to name a few.
