Tonight's Jamie Oliver meal was home made pesto with pasta shaped like "little silk handkerchiefs"-- I copped out and used pappardelle instead, but the fresh pesto was very tasty and very easy! I toasted pine nuts in the oven on 350 until they were golden brown. I then used the Kitchenaid MiniPrep to food process the pine nuts, fresh basil, fresh grated parmesan, garlic, olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. In addition we had a nice antipasto platter with olive bread sticks, proscuitto, mortadella, fresh mozzarella, tomato and peppered salame. Tomorrow will bring us to the end of Naked Chef week-- here's to artichoke risotto!!
