Spinach Pesto

We shared  our SPAGHETTI AL PESTO last week where we featured a simple and scrumptious pasta dish made with the classic basil pesto. Now we’re continuing our pesto love fest with a variation on the classic basil pesto…Spinach Pesto!

I created this spinach pesto as part of a collection of 5 Pesto inspired recipes that I’ve posted on Tablespoon.Com . You can find my basic basil pesto, oven roasted tomato pesto, chicken rollatini with oven roasted tomato pesto, spaghetti al pesto, and of course this scrumptious spinach pesto.

Classic pesto is fantastic but this is a nice twist when you want a little something different.

    Oh my heavens, yes. My heart belongs to spinach pesto. And arugula pesto. And regular run of the mill basil pesto.

    All pesto.

    All of it.

    I’m crying.

    I adore pesto! Spinach sounds like such a great idea, instead of basil. My mind is racing with ideas, add to vegetable lasagna, in a pasta salad. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Sounds great…although I’m substituting toasted walnuts for pine nuts today. I’m on strike until they get back to reasonable prices!
