Good day my lovely Pouters!
What a lovely day it is, you wanna know why…. Today I made myself a light lunch before this blog entry, made out of the goodness of the tasty Red pepper pesto from Pesto Princess, some mayo, rye crackers, red bell peppers, and some olives with added cheese blocks. The pesto is from a brand called Pesto Princess, an awesomely fresh brand I recently came accross.. you just have to try them out!
Pesto Princess offers ultimate flavour with added freshness to insure you enjoy every meal.
Here’s some recipes you could try out when using your Pesto Princess flavours:
Pesto Pizza Split a loaf of French bread and brush with pesto. Top with capicola, shredded mozzarella and grated parmesan. Broil until the cheese melts.
Pesto Fritters Mix 1 cup each ricotta and chopped spinach, 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 cup each grated parmesan and pesto, and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder; chill 30 minutes. Deep-fry tablespoonfuls in 350 degrees F vegetable oil until golden, 4 minutes. Serve with marinara sauce.
Pesto Butter Mash 3/4 cup pesto into 4 tablespoons softened butter.
Tuna–White Bean Pasta Cook 1 sliced garlic clove in a skillet with 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1 minute. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, 1 can each drained tuna and white beans, and 1/4 cup pesto. Toss with 12 ounces cooked spaghetti and some torn basil.

How did the quirky name, Pesto Princess, come about?
At a market in the early days, someone asked her what her company name was. Without thinking, she replied, “Pesto Princess”, and giggled.
And so it was.
