    Northern Cook's Note:

    I got this recipe from my brother-in-law - - it is his signature dish. I know he got the original recipe from a cookbook, but I do not know the name of the book. The pesto has an intense green color and a pleasingly bold flavor. Serve over thin to regular spaghetti noodles. Also, this pesto freezes very well.

      Super easy and very very good. Since I am a big garlic lover, I added extra to mine. I made a double batch so I could freeze some for later. Just love easy tasty recipes!!! Thank you for sharing this.

      I really liked this, and found that it works very well with only 1/2 cup of olive oil. I even added more spinach to get the consistency that I wanted. Perhaps variations are due to ingredients ... type of cheese, walnuts, etc. It's delicious and now I know how to use up our surplus spinach. Thanks.
