Sometimes, alliteration makes a dish taste as good as it sounds on the tip of your tongue – not to mention pesto is a great summer dish to enjoy on your front porch, an open window, or on your stoop! Love me a good stoop meal from time to time.
* If you can’t find prosciutto, pancetta works great, OR if you want to save a little $$$, use 3-4 strips of thick-cut bacon. Cook in the oven, at 400°F, on a rimmed baking sheet covered in aluminum for ~15-20 minutes or until crispy – thick cut may take a little longer.
** I happened to see the pappardelle in my grocery store’s pasta aisle, but spaghetti…or any kind really, will work perfectly too!
