This past Summer, I had so many chives I had to come up with a recipe to use them all - the result was a chive and parsley recipe that tasted great. I kept adding ingredients to my Vitamix and came up with a great-tasting pesto!
1lb of shrimp (peeled and deveined, tails on is fine)
1lb of medium scallops (frozen or fresh works for either of these)
fresh, boxed or frozen linguini
salt & pepper
2 packed cups of fresh chives
2 packed cups of fresh parsely (small parsley stems are OK but remove the larger ones)
2 tablespoons of minced garlic
1/2 cup lemon juice
3/4 cup walnuts
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
3/4 cup of olive oil (add more if needed)
1 tsp salt
To make the pesto, place all of the ingredients into your blender (I use a Vitamix) and whiz until all ingredients are blended together - if it looks dry and gets thick & pasty-looking add a little more olive oil until it has the consistency of the picture belo
Saute the shrimp and scallops in a pan with olive oil, salt & black pepper & a squeeze of lemon juice until cooked.
Boil the pasta.
Mix the ingredients together et Voila!
