179 Days of Dinner - Day 1 - Pesto Pasta

I was inspired for this evening's dinner by the one and only Pioneer Woman.  One of her latest posts extolls the virtues of pesto:

Pesto Recipe
1 cup basil
1 clove garlic
1/3 cup freshly-grated parmesan cheese
1/3 cup pine nuts

  2. Looks great! I love the blog idea! I will be checking in periodically to get ideas for my dinners.
