Mustard Green and Roasted Garlic Pesto with Pecorino-Romano Cheese
This pesto recipe uses very little oil and cheese. Instead, the creamy roasted garlic provides the rich texture.
Not only do almonds add taste and body to this pesto, but they're also rich in calcium, vitamin E, and heart-healthy fats.
Pesto with Pasta: Toss with whole-wheat linguine (one tablespoon pesto per ounce pasta).
Pesto on Chicken: Spoon atop grilled chicken breasts, about one tablespoon per breast.
Pesto on Bread: Spread on toasted slices of whole wheat for quick crostini.
