green genie


G
reen, I heard there was a green thing going on so I wanted in on it. I was so confused as to how I was going to make my green thing not 'so' and terribly 'so' all at the same time.



I had beet greens but they lost their green after cooking so I had to scramble something up.



I went for fresh made carrot pasta with a green bean pesto and a splash of alfredo. Who knows where this came from but side by side with a piece of grilled swordfish the flavors were able to do their rambunctious thing with out stepping on any toes.

I am submiting this to Girlichef for the BSI going on with green.

Oh what an innovative dish! Never heard of carrot pasta before. Bean pesto looks awesome and the dish would have tasted great with grilled fish. Awesome entry!
