LOVE FOR KALE


Kale is one of our favourite greens, my fridge never runs out of it. I add in a smoothie, make stir-fry, steam it or sometimes make kale crisp too.


Our daughter is a great fan of pasta, and always in search of Various kind of pesto recipe. A few months ago she found this recipe, she tried it and asked me to prepare. It was an instant hit!
