Awesome Spinach Basil Pesto

By | Recipes | No Comments

I ran across an awesome spinach basil pesto recipe. Check it out:

1 1/2 Cups Baby Spinach leaves
3/4 Cup Fresh Basil leaves
1/2 Cup toasted Pine Nuts OR toasted Walnuts
1/2 Cup grated Parmesan Cheese
4 cloves of Garlic, peeled and quartered
3/4 Teaspoon of Salt
1/2 Teaspoon of freshly ground Black Pepper
1 Tablespoon of fresh Lemon Juice
1/2 Teaspoon of Lemon Zest
1/2 Cup of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

Blend all the ingredients until smooth. Start out with half the olive oil, blend, then add the rest. It’s fantastic over fresh noodles. Top with grilled chicken!
