About a month ago I cut off all the leaves from our basil plants and made pesto with the basil leaves, almonds, garlic, and olive oil. I froze the pesto in a quarter cup ice tray and then transferred the cubes to a zip lock bag in the freezer. It is so easy and delicious to plop one of those cubes in a pasta to make a yummy dinner.
I paired the pesto with onions, mushrooms, and asparagus. Asparagus was on sale this for less than $2.00/lb! It was like a delicious breath of springtime before winter has even started!
