Zoodles With Basil Pesto

If you are not a fan of zucchini noodles, by all means, use cooked pasta.

2 servings

Ingredients

2 zucchini
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup basil pesto, see recipe below
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

Cut the base end off the zucchini and use the other end to hold while the zucchini turns in the gadget.

Place the zoodles on a double thick layer of paper towels to dry.

In a large skillet, heat the butter and, then, add the zucchini noodles; toss for 2-3 minutes. Add the cheese and pesto sauce; toss the zoodles until completely covered in pesto.

Basil Pesto

Ingredients

4 packed cups washed basil leaves
½ cup shelled pistachio nuts, pignoli or walnuts
4 garlic cloves, peeled
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Directions

Place the pistachios, garlic, salt, and pepper in a processor bowl. Process until the nuts and garlic are chopped.

Add the basil leaves and process for a minute or two. In the opening spout at the top, pour the olive oil as you process.

Keep processing until the mixture is smooth. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator.

Caprese Salad

2-3 servings

Ingredients

2 large vine ripe tomatoes
4 oz fresh mozzarella
Black Olives
Extra-virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup fresh basil leaves, sliced thin

Directions

Slice the tomatoes and mozzarella cheese into 1/4″ slices.

Assemble the salad by layering slices of tomato, mozzarella, and basil leaves on a serving plate.

Season with salt, pepper, and drizzle with the olive oil.

Scatter a few olives around the serving plate and serve.

Grilled Ribeye Steak

2 servings

Ingredients

1 ¼ lb bone-in Ribeye steak
2 teaspoons steak seasoning (I use Pensey’s)
1 tablespoon butter

Directions

Press the steak seasoning onto the steak and let it sit at room temperature for one hour before grilling.

Preheat an outdoor grill or a stovetop grill pan. Oil the grill.

Place the steak on the grill and cook for 4 minutes. Turn the steak over and grill for 3 minutes for medium-rare or 4-5 minutes for medium.

Remove to a plate and place the butter on top of the steak. Let rest 5 minutes before slicing.
