Pesto: A More Recent Birthday Tradition


I don’t know how it started, but for a few years now, I’ve always made sure I have a pesto dish around my birthday. This is incredible pesto linguine with fresh spinach and cracked pepper. It was delicious!

So it may be an unusual birthday tradition, but it’s still a tradition!

When I think pasta and pesto I think…Italian! One of my favorite “Italian” love songs is “Return to Me.” When I was learning art songs in high school, I learned to sing phonetically in French, German, and Italian. I also learned to sing “Return to Me,” though not an art song, in Italian.

So check out Dean Martin singing “Return to Me!”
