Vegetables With Basil Pesto Sauce

Making easy side dish recipes can be a challenge, but this easy vegetable recipe should be on your go-to list!  Using prepared pesto sauce, makes this simple side dish easy and delicious!  I have a fresh basil pesto recipe, but I don’t always have enough fresh basil on hand to make it, so I buy prepared pesto sauce, which is quite tasty, as long as you can find a good brand.  That’s where the bulk of your flavor is coming from, so try to find one that you really like or Italian specialty stores sometimes have fresh basil pesto sauce. For vegetables, I chose to use asparagus, Portobello mushrooms, sweet onions and red and yellow bell peppers for my vegetable sauté. Vegetables that are in season or whatever you’d prefer to use will be just fine, but I really like this combination, as it looks and tastes great. The vegetables cook quickly in the pan and are still crisp, but tender and very colorful.  I serve this healthy side dish with chicken, with pasta and with fish or with shrimp.  I just made it for dinner with my Parmesan Herb Crusted Tilapia.  Yum!
