This past summer when I was preparing the pesto sauce I said to myself -"self ! make a lot of this sauce, it will come in handy on busy evenings". Yesterday was that day. I planned on making a light dinner... I opened the refrigerator door and "ta..daa.." my green gem was right there.. I planned my menu around the pesto sauce! Imagine that!. We had spiral pasta, pepper chicken and avocado salad.
