Cilantro-Parsley Pesto...YUM!

One of the aspects that I honestly love about my job is that I get to cook dinner almost every time I'm there, and I've been allowed some creative flexibility since we revised the menu. This was my tasty little dish this week...Cilantro-Parsley Pesto pasta. I know I know, you think pesto=basil, but not so in this case! It all started about a month ago when I wanted to make pesto and lo and basil to be found. Anywhere. One of the downsides of living this far north is that fresh ingredients are a little more difficult to come by. Or they just arrive later than expected. So I pouted for about a minute then came up with this delish dish using what the grocery store had available...cilantro and Massive quantities. It has a much more mild flavor than a basil pesto would, but it is absolutely yummy and much more budget friendly. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! P.S. The colors of this meal are Gorgeous, serve it up with a baguette and fresh salad and it becomes a very filling, healthy meal.

  1. Mmm, come to my house and make this for me now! It was soooo good the lsat time you made it! You should also post your couscous recipe, I feel as though that one will be a winner, too!

  2. I will definitely be making a post about the Summer Couscous Salad recipe soon. Probably within the next few days. :)
