Speaking of food, I prepared pesto for the first time this evening. I mixed this fresh homemade classic sauce with farfalle for dinner.
It turned out well. I'm looking forward to lunch tomorrow! I basically halved the recipe from the cookbook the glorious PASTA OF ITALY by Domenica Marchetti. The author's mother is from Abruzzo, the region I studied abroad in, so I know the towns she mentions. I love her other cookbook Big Night In as well. Since I do not own a food processor, I used my blender. I grew the basil myself, from a plant Kate from Une Vie Chic gave me. I love having another recipe under my belt.
This is my 17th post this month, which is a record! I'm trying to post more often and I'm happy with the result.
