Parsley Pesto

I am so spoiled by my favorite organic CSA farmer Peter Paniccia of Pietro’s Coop who brings me bushels of parsley every summer and fall. I use a lot of this parsley fresh in my everyday cooking but I also make a great pesto with it, which last me through the winter months.

The pesto is really easy to make and keeps really well in the fridge for months on end. I use it in everything from pastas, soups, sandwiches, sauces and so much more.
