A sign of summer- fresh made pesto! (although as John pointed out, the basil wasn't fresh from my garden) I love, love fresh pesto! On pasta, potatoes, toasty bread with cheese, meats, as a dip- there are so many yummy ways to enjoy pesto. In the summer season, I must make a batch (often a double) weekly.
On this night we choose to use it as a sauce for a grilled pizza. We used Trader Joe's pesto crust, our fresh pesto, fresh mozzarella cheese, and a bit of crumbled bacon(this little nugget was John's idea- and a great one, the little bit of salt and crispy texture brought it all together) and then tossed the whole thing on the grill. Fabulous "welcome summer" dinner!
