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! MORE + LESS -
