Green Beans With Balsamic Pesto
40 mins (prep 30, cooking 10)
11 ingredients
6-8 servings
Recipe comes from Lynn Rosetto Kasper's cookbook The Splendid Table. It's amazing how a little balsamic can invigorate basil pesto! I've changed the order for the pesto, hopefully this will solve the problem other reviewers have experienced.
