Have you made pesto with spinach? I really didn’t know you could do such a thing until this past week! I have made in the past basil pesto, kale pesto, broccoli rabe pesto and sun-dried tomato pesto but I didn’t have many of those ingredients on hand. What I did have was two big bags of sad looking spinach – buy one get one free – that I needed to use before they got all slimy and gross. I took a chance and threw the spinach in the food processor with olive oil, garlic and parmesan cheese – minus the pine nuts. I zoomed away and what appeared was a beautiful green pesto made of spinach. Have you ever made spinach pesto? What other versions of pesto have you made? What should I try next?
Here spinach pesto is drizzled on top of roasted potatoes and sautéed zucchini and squash. Yum, Yum.
