4 Roma tomatoes
Hand full of Fresh Basil
Sprinkle of salt and pepper
For the past nine summers, I make pesto and freeze it for the winter. It is a tradition that is well worth the time and cash investment. The olive oil, almonds, lemon, Parmesan and fresh basil and garlic from the farmers market adds up to about 25 dollars. Basil pesto for me, has awakening properties. I feel better, think clearer, when smelling and tasting it. I put it on
and make lasagna and spinach enchiladas with it.
I am thankful for basil!
