Easy Weeknight Dinner ~ Pasta with Pesto

Basil Pesto

I am sure you remember on August 22, 2011 when I showed you my basil pesto that I was making and stashing in my freezer.   I mean you do have all my posts neatly categorized and filed away right.  Oh wait, you might be waiting for me to neatly categorize my posts, instead of the mile long labels field that is displayed on my side bar.  Yeah, I’m waiting too. 

But what I’m not waiting for is summer to have fresh basil pesto (let’s pause and admire my segue).    For a quick weeknight dinner nothing beats pulling a jar of basil pesto out of your freezer, boiling up some pasta, tossing it all together and calling it dinner.  See the above photo, my pesto was still a little cold, so I propped it up on my pasta pot.  Sometimes my ingenuity is so amazing it’s frightening.  Right?

    If that were ME trying to balance that jar of pesto…I’d end up with a cracked jar and a stovetop full of pesto. That I’d be licking up. Unabashedly.

    I remember it like it was yesterday. We like to do the same thing, except we freeze it in ice cube trays then store the cubes in vacuum bags.

    That is quite a balancing act, Pam… Glad the pesto stayed there!!!!!

    I DO remember your old post talking about freezing your pesto for the winter!!!!!!

    Have a great Friday.
