SUMMER! BASIL! PESTO! Are we there yet? Um, nearly. Can you tell I’m excited about it? Give me a few days of 75 degree weather and I’m plunging straight into July. YAH SUMMER!

Seriously though. I am excited for summer, and living in Portland for my first summer since … Um… the 90s? Scratch that, I spent one summer — after I graduated from high school — in Portland, but other than that I spent all of my summers in Colorado, then moved away! NOW I’M BACK! I’m so excited! I’m especially excited that I’ll have access to my Mom’s garden/farm. It’s really a garden, but MAN does she crank out the produce! I’m going to come raid it regularly and take home veggies and herbs in abundance! Thanks in advance, Mom!

While the basil may not be in full force (YET!), her freezer still has plenty of frozen pesto made from last year’s crop. WIN WIN WIN! I love pesto! LOVE IT. But you know what I also like? A thicker pasta sauce. Pesto has the flavor to beat everyone else, but I always find myself wanting more SAUCE. A saucier sauce. Oooh yeah!

With that in mind, I set out to make a really simple creamy pesto sauce. This is the simplest fix ever: just make a simple white sauce (butter, flour, milk) and add in your normal pesto. Thick, creamy, pesto-y goodness! It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s a total crowd-pleaser. Especially if I’m part of the crowd. Mmmm!

If you wanted to be really fancy (or just a cheese-lover), you could throw in a bunch of parmesan, too! I know there’s already some parm in pesto, but you could take it up a notch if you wanted to. I didn’t (this time), but definitely thought about it!

Go whip this up! Enjoy your intro to summer! xo
