Happy Mother’s Day!
Today for Sunday Supper we are sharing with you our favorite Mother’s Day recipes. I went with a classic Pesto Pasta Salad which is perfect for serving for brunch on Mother’s Day! I love it and I have to admit, it’s the best pesto sauce I have ever made.
This pasta dish is made with fresh basil from my garden, cherry tomatoes and marinated Mozzarella Balls that I purchased from Trader Joe’s. I love the Mozzarella Balls! I also used a spiral pasta because it holds the pesto flavor very well. The dish is light, refreshing and perfect for a main salad or as a side dish. We served it with chicken on the side. It is a win, win recipe in this house!

- Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Today I won’t be celebrating Mother’s Day with my Mom. She lives in North Carolina, and I am here in California. I do miss her dearly and I wanted to wish her the best Mother’s Day ever! Love you Mom!!
