countdown to 2012: best main dishes

 Countdown to 2011 with Finding Joy in My Kitchen

This week I am counting down to 2012 with SnoWhite from Finding Joy in My Kitchen. She is inviting readers to join in the fun by sharing their very best recipes of 2011. Today’s theme is main dishes. I’m cheating here a little bit because I really wanted to include this recipe, but couldn’t figure out where to put it, so… it’s going here 🙂

My roasted garlic and sunflower pesto was such a fun recipe to create from our bountiful CSA basil share last summer. You can use pesto in a variety of ways with your main dishes. Naturally, you can use it as a pasta sauce, but it’s also wonderful on pizza, with chicken, or thrown into a batch of roasted tomato soup. I hope you enjoy this one!
