Pesto Pasta & Spinach

Another yummy meal from the fresh basil in our yard. The plant, thanks to my pop-in-law, is humongous. This is easy, quick & most importantly, a cool meal that can be served hot, at room temperature or cool/cold in the summer!

Pesto Pasta & Spinach

  • 1/3 c  pine nuts
  • 2 c  fresh basil leaves
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled 
  • S & P
  • 1/2 c grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • 1/2c  good, Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 lb pasta (favorite shape)
  • 14 oz fresh, baby spinach, washed

Toss the first 5 ingredients into the food processor. Process! As the ingredients combine... drizzle in the olive oil. Sauce is done when it is the consistency you prefer!

Meanwhile cook the pasta al dente... The last 2 minutes of cooking, add the spinach into the boiling pot with the pasta. Drain all & combine with the pesto & serve. ENJOY!
