Oh, The Pestobilities! (NAPSA) - For years, pesto has been a delicious Italian ingredient typically used in unique recipes at upscale restaurants. However, with the growing popularity of food television shows and celebrity chefs, pesto has become more mainstream, appearing on restaurant chain menus and topped on bakery breads and gourmet pizzas.
Although the most common way to enjoy pesto is as a pasta sauce, pesto can easily be added to a variety of everyday meals. Following are some delicious ways to enjoy pesto in your favorite foods:
From breakfast to dinner, pesto offers incredible flavor. This recipe, found on Buitoni.com, combines pesto with fresh tomatoes and roasted red peppers-a delicious way to start the morning.
Combine eggs and tomato in small bowl; set aside.
Heat greased, large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Pour in egg mixture. Mixture should set immediately at edges. Carefully push cooked portions at edges toward center so uncooked portions can reach hot pan surface, tilting pan and moving cooked portions as necessary.
While top is still moist and creamy looking, fill with roasted pepper, pesto and cheese. Reduce heat to low; fold omelet in half. Cook for an additional 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
