Summers in Atlanta are pretty hot
and some days I don't really feel like
cooking dinner or eating for that matter.
I have been looking for some good summer recipes.
Main dishes that can be served cold or that are light.
Tonight I tried out a pesto which is a little
lighter than my typical red sauce.
Basil & Pistachio Pesto
2 cups basil leaves
3 garlic cloves
1/2 cup Pistachio Nuts, peeled
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
salt to taste
Put the first 3 dry ingredients in the food processor
and pulse until they are extremely fine.
Then add the oil and cheese and pulse again.
Taste ~ add salt ~ mix and taste.
This pesto can be poured over your
favorite pasta and served cold or warm.
This lovely dish is being submitted to Ruth
for her weekly Presto Pasta Nights Event.
I think this was a very good dish.
It was quite flavorful.
I hope you enjoy!
