Israeli Couscous and Corn Salad

This recipe is something that you can make quickly and easily using a blender. Everything you need is easy to find in your local supermarket. This paste is great for putting on or in meat and pastas, or with cottage cheese in stuffed pasta shells.

Once I start making this, the orders from friends and family keep coming in. For best taste, pesto should be heated up in the meal it’s being prepared with.
