Broccoli Pesto | Cooks JoyHope you all are having a fun filled Independence Day weekend. We got back from a mini vacation and it sure is tough to get back to the normal routine. With all the cleaning and washing I wanted something quick and easy for dinner and the pesto came to the rescue. I have come a long way from assuming that pesto can only be made with basil :) .

Shopping in the big city always includes bags of spinach, broccoli and garlic and they were put to good use. I also sauteed some colorful bell peppers and spinach to add to the pasta. The pesto was creamy, full of flavor and it also doubled as a sandwich spread the next day. Off to the recipe.
