Vegetables of my labor

Why doesn't anyone ever say that?  Fruits of my labor, sure.  But never vegetables!  Poor underrated vegetables. 

I recently made pesto from the fresh basil in my garden.  It was a thing of beauty and joy forever. Well, at least until I ate it all. =)  Considering the slow production of the rest of my garden, I'll take it.  This pesto was so beautiful and delicious I forgot to take a picture before I used it.  Whoops.   However, I made a version of Pioneer Woman's pesto vegetable pizza, and it was fabulous. 

Oh, I could eat this every night!  Delicious.  I grilled my veggies (portabello mushrooms, zucchini, squash, tri-color bell peppers) after drizzing them with a mixture of olive oil and red wine vinegar, and I only used fresh mozzarella for my cheese. Here's the original recipe if you want to check it out for yourselves.
