Garlic Scape Pesto is not for the faint of heart! Full of garlic zing, it goes perfectly on pasta or pizza!
This is a continuation of my local Nova Scotia food series! These garlic scapes are so fresh and beautiful, they usually are cut around the beginning of July to really let that garlic bud grow to its full potential. These cuttings from the garlic plant taste just like garlic, and are so easy to cook with. Plus you are using all of the parts of the plant – no waste! Hooray for sustainable food!
Seriously. I don’t know if I can express how much I love it. I love it so much that when Mr. Nomato and I were first dating, the way he pitched his favourite restaurant in the city to me was that their caesar salad was so garlicky it burned. I was instantly sold.
