Crispy Green Beans with Pesto

The trick to learning to like vegetables you hate is to disguise their appearance and flavor. Think about what it is you dislike about that particular vegetable.
I asked Fred why he's anti-green beans. It turns out that he remembers the long, mushy canned beans from childhood.
Step 1: Chop the beans into 1-inch pieces.
Step 2: Change texture. Sauté them in a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper on high heat until they're crispy on the outside and still slightly firm.
Step 3: Change the flavor: Add pesto (with homemade lemony basil from the co-op) and an extra bit of parmesan cheese!
Results: "Is this pasta?" Fred asks as I hand him a plate of beans. Submitted by STEPFANIER

Pesto Roasted Red Potatoes

Tasty! I like the flavor of the red potatoes, especially when roasted. You can roast them until just soft, or longer to get more crispy ones, like I prefer! Submitted by CHENIA
