Trapanese Pesto!!



trap dinner

Hello Everyone!!!

Well since I last posted, I have been still very busy.
But I just finished a 3 part cooking series Vine to Table, and as I get a little time
here  I will post some of my recipes.

This first one is one of my most favorite pesto’s, it is so refreshing and if you
have never had it then this is one to make today.

It is so simple, my recipe makes about 3 1/2 cup, I used 2 cups on a 16 oz. package of
Rigatoni Pasta and it was perfect.

Put the rest in the fridge or freeze it and enjoy it in the winter months.

This would be great on chicken or pork, use as a sauce for Chicken Parmesan,
Eggplant Parmesan.

Which ever way you use it enjoy!!!!
