Recipe: Spinach Pesto

8:00 AM

I love pesto, it is so delicious as a pizza sauce or on pasta.  But you can't always find a big basil plant in the store, and I hate buying three or four of those little plastic containers of basil at $3 a pop!  So here is my alternative to basil pesto... spinach pesto!  And guess what, it tastes just as good and the texture is identical!

What you need:
2 cups spinach leaves
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 tsp sea salt
pinch black pepper
Add it all to you blender or magic bullet and blend.  Boom you're done!  Throw this on some chicken and pasta and you have a meal ladies and gents!  Have a great Wednesday y'all!
