Today is day 24 of my “31 Days of Global Flavors” series in honor of National Nutrition Month. Today dietitian and friend Jill Weisenberger talks about her favorite global flavor, basil.
Basil is a favorite herb all year long. I got to know about it when I went to Italy the first time. I ate gnocchi in pesto sauce in a tiny whole-in-the-wall restaurant in Florence, Italy. I’ve been playing with basil and pesto ever since. Here is my recipe for Tomato and Goat Cheese-Walnut Pesto Flatbread. I hope you enjoy it!
