Pesto is pretty easy peasy to make up on the fly using what you have instead of a hard and fast recipe, but for reference, here's what I used:
1 packed cup of kale
1 packed cup of herbs (I used a mix of basil & parsley)
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup good olive oil
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup walnuts
1 tablespoon of softened butter
Cook some pasta (the pesto recipe above works on about 6 servings of pasta), reserve a few tablespoons of the cooking water when you drain it, and then toss with the pesto. Sprinkle on some more Parmesan if you'd like and enjoy! Stay hungry.
PS - Are you still reading? Good! There was no organic place to share this above, but I wanted to make sure you got a chance to see this video, which showed up on my Facebook news feed last night with the heading "I love you internet, don't ever change." I laughed for about 20 minutes and then worried that this was the country lifestyle I'm headed towards. When I made Jesse watch it he said "I want overalls". Yee haw.
