It's that time of year again: when ramps are popping up at local farmers' markets. And we couldn't be more excited. These spicy spring alliums are great in just about everything, though they really shine in this vibrant pesto recipe from Colu Henry's new book, Back Pocket Pasta.
This pesto recipe is built to toss with pasta, but it would also be great served with chicken, dolloped onto pizza or mixed into salad. If you have an abundance of ramps, make a jumbo batch and keep the leftovers in the fridge to have on hand all spring long.
