Do you ever buy some parsley (or cilantro or basil) for a recipe, use a little bit of it, then not know what to do with the rest of it? Make a pesto! I know basil is an obvious one for pesto making, but parsley and cilantro also make delicious pesto. We especially love making a pizza with cilantro pesto, mozzarella, red onions, roasted red peppers, and sometimes sausage. A few weeks ago we had a bunch of parsley left over from a meal, so we made a parsley pesto using this recipe.
We roasted some purple asparagus, tossed in olive oil and salt and pepper.
Then we mixed it all together with some whole wheat pasta and voila!
