Need a fun side dish for tomorrow's festivities? By fun, I mean 'easy', and of course I'm referring to my favorite summer side Pasta with Pesto. YUM!!!!
But, now that I am a bona fide gardener, I'm putting a bit of kale in with my usual pesto ingredients (basil, olive oil, pine nuts and garlic). Kale is a superfood so expect to be able to fly or have x-ray vision after you eat it.*
*This statement is probably mostly not true. Maybe.
Also, the addition of kale helps the pesto keep that awesome green color. If you give this a try, and you really should I INSIST, be sure to keep the kale/basil ratio at 1:2. That's one part kale to two (or more) parts of basil. I think. Really I'm not sure how to express that in mathematical terms, so just read the word parts and do what that says.
Have a wonderful (and safe) Independence Day!
