FROM LUCIA'S GARDEN



Last night my friend Lucia brought me a bag of enormous basil leaves from her garden, along with some courgette flowers, peppers and chilli peppers. A late-night pesto-making session was in order!

Such healthy fare. It's lunch time...a bacon sandwich would be nice. I'll take some pesto on the side.

Hi, Anne. Pasta with pesto is wonderful. Yes, it's very kind of Lucia. Hello, Peter.I'll show you on the next post! OK, Mary, a dollop of pesto coming up. Grazie, WW. And they are, jams. Hi, James. You're right - it is. It took ages to get the basil leaves to stay on the plate, Cherie!

Brilliant idea! Local markets full of these ingredients, and I'd never thought of making pesto from 'em. Thank you so much for that, Welshcakes.
