Please Pass The Pesto, Not the Pasta!Soups / March 20, 2017
I recently upgraded my poor, old, dented Revereware soup pot (can you say, 1982?) to a wonderful high-end piece of cookware. Oh, happy, happy, happy!!!! It was a rite of passage actually. And I am in LOVE with my new pan. I had a hard time not buying up the entire store — that’s how much I love Sur La Table. But ONLY because I love increasing my power to nourish others!!!
One thing I do believe in besides nourishing, is paying it forward. And that’s why I developed this recipe to help show off some amazing Pesto hand made by a friend of mine, Erin Grier Stevens, the founder of She’s Pesto in Charlotte, NC. Erin has the most delicious, homemade, all locally sourced and traditional Pesto. It is bright and clean, tangy and full of flavor. And the perfect topping for, of all things, beef stew. YUM. She and I are also being featured in the April Issue of Lake Norman Lifestyle Magazine, thanks to our friend Melissa Latin, the Food Editor for the Magazine. So we’re pretty excited about the exposure about our respective businesses. But at the end of the day what I think we love most is good food. And we definitely both believe that’s the currency of LIFE.
So, here’s your invitation to pass the Pesto and the spoon!
