Simple Basil-Spinach Pesto
made it | 0 reviews |
"I wanted a very simple, basic basil or spinach pesto without all the 'extras,' so I created my own version. This is great as a spread or anywhere a pesto is called for. The basil and spinach are interchangeable for 2 kinds of pesto or they can be combined (half-and-half) for a great spinach-basil pesto!"

Original recipe yields 4 servings (1 /2 cup pesto)
- Combine basil, spinach, and pine nuts in a food processor; blend until finely chopped, about 30 seconds. Add garlic and pulse 15 to 30 seconds. Add oil slowly while food processor is on. Stop to scrape sides with a rubber spatula as needed. Add Parmesan cheese and pulse until blended.
- Cook's Notes:
- Pine nuts can be replaced with pecans or walnuts. Each nut creates a slightly different flavor.
- Pecorino Romano cheese would be a suitable substitute for Parmesan.
