Spinach and Basil Pesto
Posted By Nava On June 5, 2012 @ 8:59 pm In Simple Sauces and Such | No Comments
Spinach, in combination with basil, makes a less intensely-flavored pesto sauce. Some may enjoy this milder flavor, whether served traditionally on pasta, or as a topping for potatoes or an offbeat dressing for potato salad, on grains, or as a garnish for soup.
Makes about 1 1/2 cups (enough for 10 to 12 ounces of pasta),
Combine all the ingredients except the salt and pepper in a food processor and pulse on and off until the mixture is a coarse, even puree. You may need to add the spinach in batches if your processor has a small or medium-sized container.
Stop the machine and season gently with salt and pepper; taste to see if you’d like to add more lemon juice. Serve at once — stir into hot cooked pasta or use as suggested above in the headnote.
