Super Food Pesto!

July 9, 2010

This pesto recipe was so good and made from healthy ingredients that it is forcing me out of my blog retirement. I usually get so much basil from my weekly farm share I don’t know what to do with it. The recipe was so easy! We had it for dinner one night over pasta and veggies and then ate it as a dip with baby carrots. We all had it…
