Roasted Red Pepper Pesto
a complete meal all in one bowl!
This past Sunday my friend Blake invited my boyfriend and I over to his apartment so I could cook them dinner (what a dear). But really, I do love getting to use his pretty and fully-stocked kitchen - mainly the fact that he had a food processor really excited me.
It’s always a little hard to figure out what to cook for other people - I don’t really eat meat, and …. well… my boyfriend is kind of the farthest thing from a vegetarian..
solution: PESTO - he loves it, i love it, blake loves it
+ shrimp, mushrooms, and asparagus (gotta add some protein in there)
outcome: great success
and if you time everything right, it’s really easy to keep everything warm and ready all at the same time. especially if you leave out the toppings, all you need to do is cook the pasta, roast the bell peppers, and stick some stuff in a food processor
