Expert Tips

You can store the pesto in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks.

Spinach pesto is one of those things that I always have on hand in my refrigerator since it's convenient on days when I don't have time, or the desire, to cook. My husband loves to eat it with pasta, but you can also use it to make sandwiches. Replace mayonnaise with some of this pesto. Spread some on your bread as a healthier dressing alternative, and it will also add delicioso flavor. Enjoy!

Directions

  • 1 Place the first 7 ingredients (everything but the olive oil) in a food processor. Pulse 3 – 4 times until the ingredients are somewhat ground together.
  • 2 Little by little, add the olive oil to the food processor (trickle into the processor). Continue processing until the mix has taken on a slightly creamy texture.
