What’s cooking this week!

I added a new section of my blog called “What’s on Tap for this Week” which I will try and keep updated with what recipes I am planning on making. I started off this week with making Gluten Free Rotini with Basil Pesto, Arugula, Roasted Tomatoes and Crispy Prosciutto, adapted from a recipe from Barilla, and Baked Green Beans.

The recipe for the pasta was modified from Barilla and can be found below.

The recipe for the baked green beans can be found here. We used Glutino breadcrumbs and extra black pepper instead of Cayenne Pepper.
