Week 2 – Fresh Herbs (Kari)

From Kari:  With all this rain, the oregano in my garden was starting to take over the world.  This recipe was easy and so delicious.  I added just a little basil from my garden to the oregano.

I used the pesto with quinoa pasta and tomatoes.  While the pasta cooked, I sautéed some chopped tomatoes and added a little cream and a spoonful of the pesto.  Then, when the noodles were done and drained, I added a couple more spoonfuls of pesto to the noodles and mixed it all together–and ate it up!  I still have some leftover pesto to use…pesto pizza?  Any other pesto ideas?  Feed it to my cute chickens?
