About this recipe
When I think of pesto, I immediately think of the Italian classic basil pesto. Broccoli Rabe (rapini in Italian) has always been a favored vegetable, but I only recently discovered that it also makes a fabulous pesto. Either version can be used as a pizza topping (especially as a base for shiitake mushrooms and Grana Padano cheese), a pasta sauce, or as an appetizer.
Broccoli Rabe Pesto and fresh Goat Cheese make a delicious appetizer piled atop almost any cracker or crusty bread.
