Marinara is a standard in most pasta dishes, but pesto isn’t just healthier — it’s actually even more prevalent in Italy! As the story goes, pesto was discovered on accident by an Italian chef in the 16th century when he was baking and realized he had no tomatoes. To substitute for consistency and flavor, he took some pine nuts on his land, crushed them up, and threw them into the tasty concoction!
In a cultural blend of Italian and Southern Mediterranean cooking, this dish combines pesto with chicken skewers for a tasty lunchtime treat!
