I love making pastas and pizzas and I’m always looking to do something different with my go to recipes. I usually just add a little olive oil to my pasta but one Sunday I decided to switch it up. I wanted to make my own pesto and didn’t have any nuts on hand so I thought I’d just go with some flavors I enjoy and google assured me that it wasn’t crazy to make pesto without nuts. This pesto is so easy to make and so tasty.
- 4 cups of fresh spinach
- 1 cup of basil
- The juice of 1 lemon
- 2/3 cup of Parmesan cheese
- 1 garlic clove
- salt and pepper
- 1/2 cup of olive oil
- Load up your food processor with the spinach, basil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, garlic clove and Parmesan cheese. As the ingredients are processing, mix in the olive oil. Once it's smooth and green you have the perfect pesto!
- This is super easy and so delicious!
