My dh doesnt care for basil so I searched for an alternative and found this one!

Top Review by Shylocke

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.
