RECIPE: Walnut Parsley Pesto with Chicken Sausage
Summer begs for easy everything, right? And when you have been slaving in the yard for 8 hours straight in the summer sun, you don't want to slave over the stove to make dinner that evening, too.
This is a dish I whipped up last Sunday after a long, long day of back breaking, finger nail cracking, dirty, exhausting, glorious day in the garden. I adapted it from a magazine clipping I have saved for years. Parsley and chicken Italian sausage take a starring role here. Parsley is cheaper than basil, making this dish affordable. I did throw in some basil to sweeten things up a touch. I also added a toasting step for the garlic and walnuts to help meld and enhance flavors.
The left overs were great the next day. It holds up very nicely! Give it a try!
