Marscarpone and Pecan Pesto Recipe

by katerina on October 25, 2007

Okay, so seriously? Has anyone tried to buy a book in Canada recently? The prices seem even more outrageous then usual. I went to buy Nigella Express yesterday and it was $50 at chapters, that is 17$Cad more then and still almost $10 more then the US prices again. I know we are a smaller market and a certain amount of premium is required but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. Hopefully they do manage to come to some compromise.

I think that the quickest of weeknight dinners is a pasta where the sauce takes as long as the pasta takes in the water. So this is my newest creation based on what was in my fridge and what would take very little time. I get in trouble if dinner is on the table after 9 so quick is of the essence what one gets home at 8. This is also my entry for Presto Pasta! Don’t forget to check out the roundup for more yummy recipes.
