TOMATO & BASIL PESTO
What about basil pesto? Don't you just love how it turns any dish from regular to out of this world extraordinary? And the best part is that you really don't have to do much at all? When I think that I'm writing a post and recipe about toast, it's mind boggling to me. That is, until I remind myself that it's not just a recipe it's also a little bit of inspiration for someone else. You may be reading this and not make the exact same thing (which naturally I hope that you do) but hopefully you will be inspired to create your own bright and delicious bites. Again if you that happens, I would love to talk about it so please make sure to @ me at @anosmickitchen or hashtag me at #anosmickitchen 🙂
When I posted my basil pesto recipe I mentioned how it was a classic basil pesto however I have also made pesto from just about any greens that I lay my hands on. So if you have greens that need to be used up try a pesto.
