A very easy weeknight meal, yet super delicious and decadent tasting. All you need are some greens from the garden (you can pick off broccoli leaves while waiting for the crowns to get to the size you want) and some pesto out of the freezer from the Summer before. You can of course make this all fresh in the Summer with spinach or any other veggie you may like! I usually serve this totally solo for a low carb, healthy dinner - but you could also serve it over noodles or rice. It was pretty darned rockin' along with the mac and cheese. Yummmmmmm.
- Broccoli greens, broccoli crowns, kale, chard, spinach, etc
- Pesto - about 4 ice cubes per batch (serves 2 heartily)
- Chicken stock, optional
- Jalapenos or serranos
- Optional meat - sausage, bacon, etc
- Spices: salt, pepper, smoked paprika
Voila - serves two just fine and could go much further if mixed with rice or pasta or even a baked potato. Look at that steam! Give it to me! Again! I make as many batches of pesto i can each Summer JUST to make this meal, it's that good.
Do you ever find yourself making something so tasty you just have to make it again the next night?
