      Very good sauce for pasta and pizzas. I found I needed a good amount more salt and pepper than the recipe calls for. Also, because spinach doesn't have a hint of sweetness the way basil can, I added a drop or two (literally) of Vanilla. That just about did it.

      Sorry to keep picking on you but your recipes are soooo good. I don't have an herb garden and to buy those little plastic packaged herbs at the market is so expensive when you need two cups. Spinach is the favored veggie in our house so I thought, "why not?" This was really terrific served tossed with some linguine and grilled shrimp.

      Beautiful pesto!! My flatmate thought the taste lf the garlic was quite strong but I think it was delicious. It mixes well with the pasta...even the whole grain one. I didn't have enough chestnuts so i used half of the required amount and cashew nuts for the other half. Finally, instead of using fresh parsley, i used some frozen one i already had.<br/>I was very very pleased. Thank you!!!
