Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation just released the 2008 “F as in Fat” Report. The study found adult obesity rates rose in 37 states last year. In my home state (Florida), obesity rose 1.1% to 22.9% – ranking us #34 in the nation. Yikes!
So while I like to spend my Friday Happy Hour posts on adult beverage trends and to-die-for restaurants, I thought that in light of the Trust for America report, I would give you a healthful simple recipe that’s a winner every time.
The next time you need to bring a dish to a party – at home or at the office – this is the dish to bring.
Go to your seafood counter and get some cooked and cleaned shrimp. Then go to the refrigerated pasta section and get a tub of pesto. Mix together. Voila! It’s a very tasty nosh for your guests. If you want to get über fancy – serve it with some toasted French bread or Table Water crackers.
And, in the off chance that your guests don’t eat it everything – toss it with some cooked pasta the next day for a great leftover.
