With 6 children, 4 dogs and a full time job, I do not watch a lot of television. There is just no time. Thank Goodness for DVR recording.. Sometimes I sit and watch Food Network and eat pistachios out of the bag, but they’re better in a pesto. This is not your typical basil or spinach pesto recipe..
I originally came up with this recipe after making Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts 1001 times in the cafe. I was bored with it and decided to gourmet it up a bit.. So made a Cranberry Pistachio Pine Nut Pesto to put on them. The pesto was sooooo good that I decided to incorporate it into other dishes.
Cranberry Pistachio Pine Nut Pesto would be incredible as a crostini appetizer, stuffed inside a chicken breast or wrapped into puff pastry with brie.. My mouth is already watering thinking about it.
