Parmesan Pesto Tilapia

I told you I’d be back later with a recipe 🙂 This is a great one for summer. Just a few ingredients (including those delicious summer tomatoes that should be showing up soon), a short amount of time under the broiler, and you have a really yummy dinner! This is also a great way to use up some of the basil you have growing in your garden by making it into pesto! I can’t wait until I have enough basil in my garden to make pesto. It’s getting there, and I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that the woodchucks and bunnies don’t get to it first… They’ve so far been staying away from most of my vegetables/herbs (fingers crossed), and just going after one of my pots of parsley, one jalapeno plant (leaving the other 5 alone?), and my flowers… I’m thinking of planting some distracting plants that they can eat in hopes that that’ll satisfy them!

  1. Wow! That looks delicious! Looks like the recipe would also work good for sole which is sometimes hard to find a good recipe for. Looks light and healthy 🙂
