On the Menu: Basil Parsley Pesto

Although you can buy pesto in a jar at your local grocery store, nothing can compare to the taste and color of homemade pesto. I can honestly say I could eat pesto with every meal – couldn’t you? It helps when it’s homemade. Susan of Peas and Love decided to share her favorite pesto recipe. The mix of basil and parsley is a burst of favor in your mouth. Enjoy this simple and delicious treat!
