      This brought back fond memories of our honeymoon in the Liguria region of Italy. Loved the fresh tasting pesto over the trofie, though you could probably use your favorite pesto recipe. DH chopped all ingredients in the food processor (except oil) for ease of prep. He recommends using a lower heat when warming the pesto on the stovetop. I got my trofie from a local Italian market, but am pretty sure I've also purchased it at Home Goods and/or Williams-Sonoma in the past. This was an easy, fresh tasting dinner, enjoyed with a baguette. Made for Spring Photo Tag 2013.
