Right now I have basil bushes growing in my garden. Three of them. It’s a lot of basil. One of my favorite things to make is homemade pesto! Well, that and bruschetta. The kids were a little afraid of the overwhelming “green factor”, but it turned out they really enjoyed the pasta!
The best part though, is pesto is so EASY to make. Easy is very important. Especially when school starts, we have homework, sports, and lots of baking. I want my dinners to be easy.
