Still scorching hot, though Arizona still has us beat. This week it’s mostly salads and sandwiches. I’m also including a night of pasta with pesto.

I have a confession to make about pesto. Up until recently, I used to make pasta with jarred pesto. A few weeks ago I made it fresh with my own basil. Oh. My. Goodness. What was I thinking using the stuff in the jar?

Pesto made with fresh basil and garlic is above and beyond the jar. I’m sorry now I didn’t plant more basil pots, but I will now.

I didn’t have pine nuts. Greg griped about it, but I couldn’t see spending that much money on nuts. Costco has them cheaper but you have to buy the humongo-sized bag.

Do you make fresh pesto? Must you use pine nuts for authentic flavor? I thought it was delicious without it.
