Food & Wine's senior recipe developer, Grace Parisi, is a Test Kitchen superstar. In this series, she shares some of her favorite recipes to make right now.

A quick trip to the farmers' market yielded huge bunches of basil, parsley and mint, which got put to good use, thanks to my food processor. I love adding butter to my pesto—it gives it such a sweet richness, especially when served with warm pasta, steamed beans or grilled corn. This time, I grilled some thick, well-oiled slabs of peasant bread, spread a good layer of pesto and topped them with gorgeous heirloom tomato slices. Divine! SEE RECIPE »
