Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous NEW YEAR !! 2012 has been a great year for this blog, because it was just born for 3 months and am overwhelmed with the feedback from my friends and family and I thank them all for comments, appreciation and suggestions. I am starting this new year with my favorite herb "Basil " . Recently I had Pasta Cavatappi in noodles & company and was totally in love with it . So I bought the fresh basils and prepared pesto . Its a very simple recipe with pine nuts and parmesan cheese .You can do many things with this pesto . You can add a dollop to freshly made minestrone soups, You can add them to bread and make sandwiches ,Add in a salad and toss it.
