3 weeks ago, I bought a huge plant of basil, and I really didn’t know where to use ’em all! They were HUGE like a leaf size of my palm, no kidding! I which I took a pic, I don’t know why I didn’t. So anyways, I used in lots of different foods and one day, I decided to make basil pesto! Sounded SO good, and it turned out deliciously!!
The recipe is very simple, too.
[yumprint-recipe id=’39’]Today I made open sandwich with basil pesto. I was so happy with the fresh taste of the pesto so I didn’t want to ruin it by using too much other ingredients. I decided to go very simple. Rustic bread that sliced and toasted (I used ciabatta), spread some awesomely fresh&delish pesto, pile up with sliced fresh mozzarella, Roma tomatoes, and pan-fried chicken breast. I seasoned with salt and pepper, simple as that.
OMG, Jacob and I LOVED that simpleness of the food. Especially we eat lots of exotic Asian food at home, some times, food like this simple we really appreciated.
When you don’t feel like cooking, or nothing really sounds good- you should try this!!!
