Pesto time. I love pesto, a staple food group in my household when I was younger. It is great with pasta, on sandwiches, pizza bases, and even with rice or salads. Let your brain run wild with the possibilities of pesto. I love this kale pesto recipe, as it is so creamy, delicious and oil-free. Enjoy.
