Let’s talk pesto. Earlier this week I mentioned that this hershey’s chocolate chocolate cake I made is like my chocolate cake soul mate. Well, pesto is my pasta sauce soul mate.
I’ve been finding a ton of recipes to use pesto in, but I really like this one because it calls for great northern beans and zucchini. Both of these are a little plain on their own, but provide a hearty balance to this pasta salad.
Oh no, here I go again cooking with bow tie pasta. I talked about my obsession for bow tie pasta in this recipe post for spinach pesto, which doesn’t actually use any pesto, but uses spinach as the base.
I suggest putting this one on your ‘to make’ list before it gets too cold to grill (aka if you live in Minnesota). But than again, you could always make the vegetables in the oven.
But now that we don’t live in Minnesota anymore, I can enjoy using the grill all winter without having to brush off 3 feet of snow each time.
