Here is a simple idea I created to delight your palate using green basil pesto already made for you, just purchase a tube at the grocers. Add a pasta "bow tie", pine nuts and cheese wedge. It doesn't get any easier than this! See more of my Amuse Bouche recipes for unique ideas and my Gourmet Appetizer Recipes.
