Presto Pesto!

Great class! Students harvested basil, took the leaves and flowers off the stems and helped add it to the blender. Mixed it with walnuts, olive oil and a bit of salt. Presto! The pesto sauce was mixed with organic pasta and cherry tomatoes also from the garden. In general, the kids love this program and what they make, but they inevitably like some recipes more than others. They loved the taste of basil! Raw and as pesto. The students received a copy of the recipe and a quiz to write about what they did in class.
