We love pesto around here, especially the toddler. Whatever I coat with pesto, Dominik devours. But I usually make pesto with basil, so I wanted to try something different. Parsley makes for a lovely bright and fresh pesto.
Sure enough, Dominik enjoyed this pesto just as much as a basil one. I made extra and have been putting it on all kids of foods because it’s just so tasty!
