Italian food is one of those foods that you can fall in love with all over again, especially after you are able to travel to the actual country and eat their food, in their environment. I love this version of pesto I made! Making it with Chard is really delicious. A twist on your regular pesto. For this recipe, I got my inspiration from the folks at Happyolks. I realy, really love their style of cooking and photography. So fresh and fun. Such a super simple easy recipe... here's the run down...
