The perfect accompaniment to tomatoes, my summers wouldn‘t be complete without at least a half dozen pesto-paloozas in the kitchen. Discipline yourself to harvest the basil, pick off the stems, and keep that food processor whirring until you’ve got a freezer full of little gleaming green jars. You’ll pat yourself on the back the rest of the year each time you pull one out to make pizza.
