    Looks nice. I'll have to try it for lunch some day. Would I be able to use store bought chicken chunks in a packet? ο»Ώ

    L'aglio nel pesto non ci va… i pinoli sΓ¬, li avevo dimenticati. Quello che fa lui cmq non Γ¨ un pesto alla siciliana. Per quanto mi riguarda Γ¨ una roba strana… cmq sembra buona.

  11. JoesPlaying

    August 4, 2016 at 10:01 pm

    apparte che nel pesto ci vanno anche aglio e pinoli, comunque il pesto rosso si chiama pesto alla siciliana..

    @brungasto LMAO — yeah, Oz fridges come in sizes a lot smaller than anything I've ever seen in Canada/North America homes (they still got the big 'normal' ones we're used to, but a lot of homes have those small ones). I'm taller than my fridge, and I'm 5'2.5.

    @brungasto It's a camera illusion – the tripod is higher than me and the camera is angled down. So it makes me look taller than everything πŸ˜‰

    @brungasto Probably – It's hard to measure yourself when you are crushing cities and saying "rawr" πŸ˜›

    @OnePotChefShow Try 2 pantries and a set of cupboards in the basement. Two freezers and 2 fridges. I quick can all my soups and stews too, that's what the second fridge is for. It's nice to have the space for every size crock pot too. All I ever wanted was a huge kitchen. Took 30 yrs to get it but wow it's great. :o)

  21. OnePotChefShow

    August 4, 2016 at 10:01 pm

    @Tonithenightowl Wow – I'd love to see your pantry. I bet you've got some interesting stuff in there with all your home canning etc πŸ™‚

    From what I gather this is the same as basil pesto but with dried tomatoes instead of the basil. Never heard of it till today but being that I dry romano tomatoes that I grow I will be making it in the food processor like I do the basil pesto.Hope it freezes as well as the basil kind. I also home can my veggies and bake my own bread but you have to have the time for stuff like that. I'm spoiled lol.

    August 4, 2016 at 10:01 pm

    @OnePotChefShow Oh okay… I guess we don't have those in jars in Italy, and I will have to make my own. LOL We're still too old fashioned πŸ˜€

  24. OnePotChefShow

    August 4, 2016 at 10:01 pm

    @andromacha83 That's the sauce I used πŸ˜‰

  25. andromacha

    August 4, 2016 at 10:01 pm

    Your pesto there is simply tomato sauce or what else is there? Just so you know, we Italians call pesto a sauce made with basil, parmesan and pecorino cheese and olive oil πŸ˜‰ You got me confused for a moment. Nice recipe though πŸ™‚

    @TheIceGolem97 If you want to – you can adapt this recipe to suit your personal tastes πŸ˜‰

  29. OnePotChefShow

    August 4, 2016 at 10:01 pm

    @ioanonissimo Feel free to replace the chicken with ham, mushrooms, or a mix of your favourite vegetables. This recipe is very adaptable πŸ™‚

    @littlebugkf you're welcome

  38. littlebugkf

    August 4, 2016 at 10:01 pm

    @JoesPlaying Thank you for the recipe for it…………can't wait to make it!

  39. JoesPlaying

    August 4, 2016 at 10:01 pm

    @littlebugkf #2 now put them in the food processor (without turning it on), add the basil (wash it first and dry it up with some paper towel), pine nuts, garlic glove, parmesan cheese, ricotta, and oil, start blending on low speed, you may stop when you're happy with it's consistency, then add salt and pepper to taste, you can keep it in the fridge (sealed) for 1-2 days.. enjoy!

  40. JoesPlaying

    August 4, 2016 at 10:01 pm

    @littlebugkf #1 Ok.. just a tip, if you have an immersion blender, it'd help to keep some more consistency to the sauce, even though it'd take a lot more time..
    Ingredients: 1 Garlic glove, a big handful (literally, handful) of basil, 150ml extra virgin olive oil, 100g parmisan cheese, salt, pepper, 50g pine nuts, 500g tomatoes, 150g ricotta.
    Preparation: wash the tomatoes, cut them in half, then squeeze them (removing all that's inside of them), then cut them in half again..

    August 4, 2016 at 10:01 pm

    @JoesPlaying I do have a small food processor………………so tell me how to make it
