You’ll love this Italian-inspired version of green eggs and ham, and you won’t even need woodland dining partners, boats or trees to enjoy it.
And don’t let this beautiful image fool you. This recipe is as easy as it gets. If you don’t have prosciutto, use pancetta (unsmoked Italian bacon) or bacon. No English muffins? Use toast. This type of recipe is typically served for breakfast, but it would also make a great brunch, lunch or dinner – any time of year, not just for St. Patrick’s Day.
Buitoni makes such high quality products, and the All Natural Basil Pesto is no exception. This is yet another product where I have to limit myself. I can literally eat this by the spoonful! And it complements so many foods (pasta, bread, fish, poultry, vegetables, etc.). It’s also fantastic with a few drops of high-quality balsamic vinegar for a dressing or marinade. It’s made the traditional way with a blend of fresh basil, Parmesan cheese and olive oil. Buitoni also makes a Reduced Fat Pesto, which has 25% less fat.
Did you know pesto originated in Genoa, Italy? It comes from the Italian word pestare that means to pound or to bruise, and is based on basil, an important Mediterranean herb.
