“would you say your pesto is the best-o?”Posted: March 31, 2011
(Shout out to my ·FRIENDS· friends ↑)
I don’t know about that. but my first attempt at fresh pesto was pretty darn good-o. one of those meals that we all fight over. one that Ava and I thought about the next day. one that I think Kurt might have felt badly for taking all of the leftovers in his lunch.
We know that we love PESTO, but without a food processor, it was never on my radar. Every time a recipe circulated, I wrote it off. But…this time when a food network recipe cropped up I remembered my new food processor and headed immediately to Trader Joe’s for the ingredients.
Pan fried some chicken, made some Ancient Harvest shells (great pasta texture-the perfect al dente noodle), tossed, EASY and DELICIOUS (and Gluten Free).
Ava:(took a bite, put her fork down, closed her eyes) yum.
And since I had to steal this spoonful out of Kurt’s already packed lunch container it’s not nearly as bright green and fresh looking as it was, but you get the idea. Hmmm… wonder if anyone would mind if I made it again tonight.
