Parsley Pea Pesto

I made the mistake of turning on my TV in the middle of the day about a week ago.  I am addicted to watching "The Chew."  Sigh.  I cannot, cannot do this....I thought I would just take my tea break a wee bit early.  Pretty soon my breaks will be on the porch with nature and no electronics.

Anyway, I turned it on and immediately had to make the pea pesto and pasta dish they made.

I had one box of Einkorn whole wheat pasta I wanted to taste, so that was my choice of pasta for this dish.

Honestly, I didn't measure.  Once you get the hang of pesto, you may not either.  

What a brilliant idea.  So good too.  Parsley from the garden, garlic from the garden, peas from the garden (if I can ever get enough to freeze), etc.  


My motto this year, in addition to our family motto on my blog.

I may have to try pesto again. I made it once and wasn't impressed but then maybe it was the person making it? LOL! My son loves The Chew also but I think you could go to their website and still get the recipes and probably watch episodes at night.

That's a wonderful motto! :) I'm trying to live by that motto too. I've never seen The Chew, do I dare or will I get addicted too??? I don't have a tv, but we do watch shows online, maybe I'll look for it. When I had tv and cable, I was addicted to the Food Network...I can't wait for porch season myself :)

Sam I Am, I will have to do that, ha ha! They are always up-beat, funny and they have healthy recipes.

Rain, we will soon be using only the internet. I haven't had a car to drop off the cable box yet. Daughter's car is still being worked on. The Chew is a great show for getting healthy and fun recipes.
