Pesto penne and salad. 8/5/21

Since I knew that the amount of pasta we were preparing would not fill us up, I made a large salad for each of us. I think I have mentioned many times before that I do not really like salad much especially I have to make it myself. In fact John mentioned last night that a good salad is one that someone else makes. But our salads were bright and colorful with lots of additional items. They were the perfect addition to our meal.

Kale and greens salad with carrots, red bell peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, and pepperoncini

Our main course was whole grain penne with the pesto I had made a few weeks before. It seemed none the worse for wear from being in the freezer for a couple of weeks. John added some additional cheese and oil to his and I garnished mine with some torn basil leaves. It was delicious!
