As a first course on Monday we started out with a tossed green salad with lots of extras. Mushrooms, carrots, cabbage, cherry tomatoes, and some spicy pepperoncini gave interest and texture to the salad. John complimented me on the salad saying that anytime someone else makes the salad it is especially good.
For our main course we had whole grain penne which was mixed with the pesto I made last week. It was sooo good. I froze the rest of the pesto and will use it the next time we have pasta. I think I’ll eat very carefully that day so I can have another ounce of pasta!
