Summer Veggie Fry

I get so excited for summer.  There is nothing better than being able to stop by a fruit stand and buy local produce.  I get so excited being able to grow some of my own veggies too, I look forward to having a big garden next year! You can add any fresh veggies you want to this recipe, the tomato pesto goes well with almost anything.  If you want your pesto to have more of a kick replace the basil with arugula.
