There is nothing quite like the aroma of herbs in the kitche. Even little Sophia has taken an interest to smelling everything. Basil just happens to have the strongest, most fragrant aroma and there is nothing quite like pasta with pesto in the summertime. I can’t take credit for the meal, nor can I spell out the recipe as hubby cooked it. It is not too difficult, but really good pesto takes finesse and he’s got it. It was perfectly balanced and the pasta al dente. Cue a simple Italian seaside setting, bright sunshine, a cool breeze, a glass of white wine and we’d have what I would call La Dolce Vita.
