      Bergy, thanks for posting this great recipe. We had this for lunch last week, and enjoyed it so much. This is so easy make, and your directions were easy to follow. I loved the flavor of the spinach and walnuts and basil. I will make this one again for sure. Thanks!

      I made this and it was phenomenal!! LOVE IT! I didn't have light cream, so I used half and half. I used 6 cloves of garlic instead of 4 since I love garlic and I used pine nuts instead of walnuts for the more traditional pesto flavor. I also opted for the EVOO. Yum!

      Yummey!!! I had some frozen basil and I used it instead of the dried and also EVOO was my choice for the oil.I left out the cream as I really liked it the way it tasted without. I was delighted to see my one year old enjoying it as well,what better to give her than raw spinach. I wonder if I can use this pesto. On bread is also great. Thanks for sharing a new fav.
