That was a smashing success. Don’t know if I will ever be able to eat any other kind of pesto.
And for those of you who have not made the switch to whole wheat pasta, you really are missing the boat. The texture is better and it has so much more flavor. I also find that it holds the sauce a lot better, too.

BTW- since I never give the dogs people food except for on very rare occasions, one of the things I have been doing is making sure the dogs understand that they eat after me. When I am done eating and the dishes are in the sink, then I make their dinner.
This has produced an amusing nightly ritual. After they finish eating, they come in one at a time and jump up on my lap to thank me and promptly burp in my face. First Rosie (piggy!), who wolfs down her meal, and then about five minutes later, Lily comes in, hops on my lap, goes to give me a kiss, and then burps in my face. Ahh, love.
