    I think this will be a once a weeker for me too! I'm so addicted to anything with pesto, spinach, or rocket or all of them at the moment! 5 Forks!

    I was thinking this would be a great St. Patty's Day dish in addition to corn beef like a side alternative (since not everyone likes corn beef) The pretty green! I am going to try!

    I can see why this is one of your favorites and one you make often. I made this for dinner last night and it knocked our socks off. It is now a regular in my home as well. Thanks for sharing.

    I've had creamy pesto at a restaurant, but I've never made it. Do you have a recipe for it?
