2013-01-30 - VI Spinach-Basil Pesto - 0002

Tonight – well, last Wednesday night; my queue is pleasantly plump tip toy herunterladen! – was a cleaning out the fridge kind of night. The remains of the spinach I bought for the Cheesy Mac and Greens became Spinach-Pesto Sauce, and the week-old green beans and half a can of diced tomatoes combined to make Green Beans with Tomatoes and Garlic – both recipes from Vegan Italiano fortnite op xbox 360. It doesn’t look like much, but I’ll be damned if this wasn’t the most delicious fridge-emptying dinner in recent memory!

The pesto, which comes together in all of three minutes, was good enough as is – though I decided to add a half a cup of walnuts for a little extra bulk herunterladen. Klein doesn’t say how much pasta one batch will coat, but a pound of angel hair seems about right. Use a little less pasta (or a little more pesto) if you like your pasta extra-pesto-y microsoft internet explorer herunterladen!

Spinach pesto is actually kind of genius – an excellent way of sneaking spinach onto the plate of someone who normally won’t touch the stuff musik herunterladen kostenlos mp3. Now that I think about it, I’m a little surprised that Wild About Greens doesn’t have a pesto recipe free minecraft to download.

As for the green beans, they’re ridiculously good. Granted, they require an hour plus of cook time, but it’s totally worth it (and mostly hands-off, anyway) download animal games. Mine didn’t get quite as melt-in-your mouth tender as Klein promises, but they came pretty close. Soft and juicy, with an almost buttery taste – mmmmm mmmmmm herunterladen. I’m salivating just thinking about it.

Pro tip: use canned tomatoes instead of fresh, juices and all. You won’t need to add much extra water, and the tomato juice will cook down into a heavenly garlicky sauce die neueste version von adobe flash player kostenlos herunterladen. I used the pasta to sop it up, no lie.
