Vegan Pesto Pasta

This can be adapted to the season and your pantry. If you have loads of basil, use all basil and no spinach; if you don’t have much, use what you have and add more spinach.


Bruschetta with Olives & Walnuts

My daughter Elizabeth loves this quick and simple bruschetta, declaring with conviction, “Olive oil is my friend.” Indulge a little with this healthy oil and savory snack.


Marinated Tomatoes

Let diners spoon over servings of pasta with pesto. If tomatoes are not in season or fresh ones are not available, you can dice frozen, thawed tomatoes or even use good quality canned diced tomatoes. Reserve any excess juice for another use.
