This is the traditional Italian recipe for basil pesto made with lots of fresh basil. *Secret chef’s technique: Sprinkle fresh parmigiano reggiano on your pasta first, after the pasta is cooked, then add the pesto. The cheese will stick the pesto to the pasta and create the perfect texture.
The rich umami flavor of roasted lamb and mint with creamy, tangy feta cheese and the crunch of pine nuts. Delicious!
Most people don’t realize that lamb is a young sheep under 12 months of age which does not have any permanent incisor teeth in wear. Mutton is meat from a sheep over two years old, and has less tender flesh. In general, the darker the colour, the older the animal. Baby lamb meat will be pale pink, in contrast to older meat which is pinkish-red. My preference is, grass-fed from Colorado.
