Broccoli Pesto with Seashell Pasta

Broccoli Pesto

Hey guys,

How have you been?  I have been trying to make some changes to my blog for the past few days. it hasn’t worked out.  I never was or ever will be a tech wiz. Honestly, I followed every tutorial and I still just don’t get. I thought I would give it a try on my own and see what comes out but it was way too exhausting.  So, I decided to leave the blog as-is for now.  🙂

I wanted to thank those who have been sending me messages these past few days.  I really didn’t think anyone was actually trying out the recipes I have been posting.  Yes, that’s right I didn’t believe it!  The feedback was amazing and made me very happy.  

Have you ever tried Broccoli Pesto? Did you know that you can make Broccoli Pesto?  Yes? No?  hmmmm, either way, if you enjoy eating Broccoli, this recipe is definitely a must-try recipe.  I thought to myself Broccoli, wow this should be interesting to try!! and believe me I was so surprised, this is extremely tasty. 🙂  Who would have thought that Broccoli would taste this good!!

Have a great week everyone!!

    I must admit I'm not a pesto kinda gal (sorry!) but this is great for those that are and the broccoli gives it a nice healthy twist. Sorry you've had such frustrations with your blog. Can't say I'm super techie these days but is there anything I could help with at all? I'm always around so ask away, though don't bank on me knowing the answers! 😂 Caz xx
