Pistachio Pesto Pasta

When trying out new recipes, I’m always looking for some inspiration.  I usually find that the best inspiration comes from ingredients that are in season.  With fall just around the corner, pistachios are being harvested like crazy and I thought they would couple perfectly in a fresh pesto.

A study conducted by Cornell University proves that us cilantro haters can't help it! It's actually hard-wired into our DNA and there isn't much we can do about it. You need to know, that you're not alone. It's thought that 10-20% of the population also has ... [ Read More ]
