Breakfast

How to make Pesto Scrambled Eggs with Bacon

Mmmm Delicious Pesto Eggs!

I love to combine the fresh flavors of pesto with my morning eggs, and who doesn’t love some crispy bacon with that combo!

Yes, we do make quite a bit of plant-based meals in our house, but we do love some bacon with breakfast or brunch!

Here is the recipe for Pesto Topped Soft Scrambled Eggs with Bacon over Toasted Baguette. This recipe serves the pesto over top the soft scrambled eggs.

I go back and forth, sometimes I’ll mix the pesto in with the eggs, while I’m cooking them, other times I’ll garnish on top; so, serve them how you’d like!

 

Pesto Caprese Sandwich 

Lunch

Pesto Caprese Sandwich

Last week we wrote about a Caprese salad, this week we’re turning that salad into a Pesto Caprese Sandwich.

This Pesto Caprese Sandwich recipe is by Cookie & Kate and uses a creamy basil sauce instead of straight pesto. Feel free to make the pesto with the mayo or sub in regular EVOO if you didn’t want a creamy sauce.

Oh and you could even turn this into a panini by pressing the sandwich!

 

Kale Pesto with Whole Wheat Pasta

Dinner

Kale Pesto with Whole Wheat Pasta

I really Love Pesto, but sometimes it’s hard to come by a big bunch of basil, so when that time comes, I sub in Kale for Basil.

I’ve done this a few times, and I’m always pleased with the wonderful flavors that come through when using kale.

This recipe for Kale Pesto with Whole Wheat Pasta by Chris Morocco at Bon Appetit is delicious and a crowd pleaser!

We like to make ours with homemade pasta, however if that's not your jam, definitely buy whole wheat pasta.
