It may be gray and cold outside, but this soup can add color and warmth to the season. It features mini pasta and a medley of vegetables all enhanced by pesto. It’s satisfying and healthy.
The spectacular coastline of Italy is home to many of the country’s most luxurious seaside resorts. It also lays claim to some disarmingly desolate stretches of coast where lush forests of lemon trees, herbs, pines and almonds create fragrant breezes. It is here that pesto was born – a classic combination of basil, nuts, olive oil and garlic.
Pesto, once an exotic Italian sauce, is now so common and popular that it can be found ready-made on supermarket shelves. But it’s much better home-made, and easy to make, especially in the summer when tomatoes are at their best.
