Green mush of goodnessI had decided on Friday that this would be Sunday night's dinner. So I bought the ingredients I needed on Friday and patiently awaited Sunday evening to give 'er a go.
I *do* have a bamboo steamer, which I whined for a few years ago until I got it. And I've never used it. Instead, I used my electric rice/vegetable steamer.
While the broccoli steamed, I placed the rest of the ingredients into the processor. Since I don't have light miso, I used the red type that I have in the fridge. Also, I used 2 cloves of garlic but, in hindsight, I should have used 3. Everything else was as the instructions stated. Which is odd for me because I usually mess with recipes.
I asked the boy if he wanted the pesto as crostini on sourdough or on pasta. He chose pasta, so when the world cooled down at about 8:30 I cooked up some whole wheat rotini with sun-dried tomatoes, more broccoli and baby spinach, and tossed it with the pesto.
I liked it. It needed more garlic. The boy had an "it's okay" response. Perhaps it would have been better if I used that "love" ingredient that Michelle used.
