Elaine's Pesto

A fun part of the Thanksgiving trip was visiting my aunt and uncle and accepting the delicious gift of homemade raspberry preserves and pesto from aunt Elaine. She makes these, along with lots of other goodies, every fall and then preserves them. Receiving one of Elaine's delicious jars is something that everyone in the family looks forward to. We were so excited about the pesto that we had to use it in our first dinner back home tonight. We mixed the pesto with whole wheat penne, sauteed eggplant, and quattro formaggio cheese sprinkled on top. Served next to a big green salad with lettuce from the farmer's market - this was a great dinner. And we will be taking the yummy leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
