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

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients into food processor and process to a fine paste.
  2. Taste and adjust seasonings and transfer to a glass container and top with a thin coat of olive oil to prevent the top of the pesto from discoloring.
  3. Keeps for weeks in the refrigerator.

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.

Delicious- used small amount of basil rather than parsley. Thanks x
