Recipe Notes

We enjoyed our pasta with baked fennel and fresh tomatoes
I served it to the kids with some cooked chicken thigh pieces instead of the fennel.
You choose!
I baked the zucchini and capsicum but there is no need to. I enjoy the depth of flavor that this creates in the base of the pesto. You may choose to simply add them raw.
