Grilled Vegetables with Parsley Pesto

Pesto is a staple of Italian cooking, yet many believe that it is only basil that can create the riotous green color so beloved in the sauce.

Flat-leaf parsley is a more subtly flavored leaf with no less color. This particular pesto goes well with the grilled vegetables so common in the summer months.

If you want, spread the pesto inside two slices of focaccia, place the grilled vegetables in between, and grill the outside for a delicious Panini.
