What’s Your Experience With the CSA Box?
An excerpt from Jacqui R. of the nursery school:

Pesto Sauce: a quick, healthy dinner
Any leafy green vegetable can quickly be whipped up into a pesto sauce. The variations are endless; you can make it spicy, fresh, nutty, earthy, cheesy, smoky, or savory. Pesto is not just for pasta. You can use it on top of soups, on sandwiches, root vegetable crostinis, pizzas, risotto, fish, chicken, or steak. If you have any leftover pesto sauce, you can use it in another dish later in the week. Store pesto sauce in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Try one of these great recipes below which are easy and a great way of using simple ingredients that taste delicious!- By Yael
