I love pesto. It’s delicious, healthy and relatively easy to make. I’ve made a Spinach Pesto and a Vegan Kale Pesto on top of the “usual” basil pesto. I, by far, like the greens pestos more than basil pesto. So, when I got a bunch of rainbow chard in my CSA box recently, I knew I could make a better than basil pesto. Plus, it’ll be pretty because of those lovely magenta stalks.
My absolute favorite pasta sauce. And it is so great to be able to pop out a cube of sauce for a serving of pasta. Delicious!
Day 324. Sunday, lazy Sunday! As I was perusing my pantry and crisper drawer for ideas for what to make today, I stumbled across a recipe on the back of my canned tomatoes box that sounded really simple and tasty. And, bonus, I still have a couple of fresh tomatoes leftover from my CSA box. […]
Day 299. I’ve been so looking forward to this dish, because, while it’s super snazzy, it’s also a super simple set of flavors that just seems guaranteed to go right. Sometimes, throughout the year, I’ve gotten frustrated with needing to create and eat a different recipe Every. Single. Day. Sometimes I just want a plain […]
Day 272. Today is a true leftover creation extravaganza. Not only did I get to use some leftover baked potatoes from the Idaho Sunrise, but I also used the “chicken” and pesto mayo from the Pesto Chicken BLT. It seems a little different for a twice-baked potato, but not too far off the charts. I […]
Day 271. I am completely in love with all pasta and this seems like the perfect way to eat pasta on-the-go. It reminds me a lot of Frugal Gourmet’s Spaghetti Frittata, but in smaller portions. The addition of the anchovy paste is an interesting one. Though I’ve never tried the “real” stuff, it’s one of […]
Day 266. I love veggie BLTs and have always liked attempting veggie club sandwiches. But, I’ve never been a big fan of veggie cold cuts. So this pesto-mayo chicken BLT club seems like the perfect solution. I am a huge fan of the site this recipe comes from, Closet Cooking. He always has simple, yet […]
Day 241. I’m over at OAMM again today with Slow Cooker Vegan Pesto Chicken. I topped mine with the optional potatoes, 1/2 onion, 3 cloves garlic, Italian seasoning and a splash of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The Results I don’t think my husband is going to be fooled by this one, like he can […]
Day 182. We got some awesome baby portabella mushrooms in our latest CSA box and I had a bit of kale pesto (made with pecans this time) leftover and a fresh, delicious red onion, also from the CSA box. So, of course, I am making this yummy-sounding Portabello Pesto Pasta. I drooled a little just […]
Day 169. I love pesto. And I just so happen to have about 1/4 bunch of kale left over from those Kale Red Onion Corn Muffins. So, I get to make my delicious vegan kale pesto and use that delicious new Black Forest Bacon and snip a bit of my fresh basil. Yum. I delayed […]
