Pesto: Italy's Cure for the Common Cold
If you’ve got a cold, Craig recommends an aromatic bowl of pasta with pesto, packed with the healing properties of garlic, basil and pine nuts: “Garlic is antibacterial, which is great for you if you get colds often, if you always take antibiotics and they’re not working, or if you’re prone to viral infections. Basil is good for your bloodstream and pine nuts have your omega fatty acids, which are great for brain function.” Take home a jar of house-made pesto from Caputo’s Fine Foods (460 Court Street, Carroll Gardens) and keep your germs out of your favorite Italian restaurant.
