A note about serious food allergies

We aren't the first to think of combining the basil-and-Parmesan garlic-y supremacy of pesto with the creamy classic luxuriance of butter. But being first isn't as important as being best, and we think our pesto butter pairs best with succulent, tender pork chops, matching richness for richness in every bite. And just in case you think the pesto-butter pork chop is the limit of this meal's “bestness,” fresh broccoli topped with Parmesan is about the best side there is. Is this one of our best meals? You'll have to be the judge.
