Pasta with Pesto Genovese is an Italian dish that we all had a million times; delicious, but always some plain pasta and pesto. Nevertheless, I was quite surprised learning that in native Liguria the dish is typically served with green beans and… potatoes!?!
To our pleasant surprise, our son announced a couple of weeks ago that he wanted to cook dinner for all of us.

I also got George Calombaris’ new cookbook Greek for my birthday. 😀
