I made some snacks for my hubby's board meeting. It is hot, I'm not going to set up a huge heating service, it has to be easy, individual and fresh. I had made individual sandwiches last time so I needed something else, and something easy at that. What did I make!?
PESTO SALAD RECIPE
Takes about 30 min to make
Serves 4 - 6 (larger portions than what is pictured)
Grape Tomatoes - about 2 cups
Pasta - I use rotini so it holds on to the pesto and more flavor; a 500g package
Pesto - about 4 oz (adjust to your preference)
Olive oil - about 3 table spoons
Pine nuts - about 1/2 cup
Pearl Bocconcini - a medium tub (about 1 cup) drained
Fresh chives or basil on top
Salt and Pepper to taste
For the fruit salad parfait, literally just made a finely chopped fruit salad, layered it in a disposable "wine glass": layer of fruit salad, layer of mini chocolate chips, orange zest whipped cream, then start all over again. Fresh, yummy, and EASY!
