      A very nice twist on the traditional pesto. I used parsley and sage from my own garden. It was very nice stirred into pasta to accompany some plain grilled chicken, and I am looking forward to using it later this week.

      A superb pesto: just loved how the sage, garlic, spinach (I used baby spinach leaves) and lemon juice blended so well with all the ingredients. We have SO thoroughly enjoyed this both stirred through mashed potatoes and with angel hair pasta. On both occasions, I added some additional roasted pine nuts. SO glad to have found this recipe, mikekey! We will be enjoying it often. Made for PRMR.
