Amuse Bouche St. Patrick's Day Pasta
put a Shamrock cookie cutter on a
plate, squeeze basil pesto from a tube in the center
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!
