Pro Tips

Winter’s savory! It’s the flavor and the experience that moves me. I love beauty, and to feel cozy. Beauty, is the Le Creuset brand. You may purchase Le Creuset Stoneware Set of 4 Soup Bowls22 oz at a reasonable cost at Amazon. I hope you feel as cozy as I did.

The buttery pesto garlic sauce gave the dish its flavor. If the butter isn’t your go-to, then try ghee, avocado oil, or olive oil. There are so many different ways to make these sauces. I think it’s important to discover what makes you happy. Your mission if you chose to accept it, is to make your own signature sauce and share it with someone.
