After writing my post about our italian food I got the biggest craving for pesto (and prosciutto but that is another post). So on my next shopping trip I picked some up. I do have basil at home and could have made my own but I wasn’t in the mood to wait, so jarred it is.
Another easy but tasty treat. I also found sliced italian bread from La Brea Bakery, score. Spread just a little spoonful of pesto and sprinkle on the shredded mozzarella. And because I am impatient I decided to broil it and get that toastiness on the cheese. I fought the urge to have two of these and instead decided to pair it with a salad of greens, broccoli slaw, tomatoes, feta cheese and candied walnuts along with a bit of olive oil and balsamic. Perfect for lunch.
