This is a tasty basil-spinach pesto, good on bruschetta, chicken, pasta, and more. It is from Relish magazine.

Very tasty! I didn't really measure, just used a bunch of basil, most of a 10oz bag of spinach, the rest of my olive oil, etc. I did use 3 cloves of garlic since we love it. This will be perfect on the turkey paninis I am making today!

This is outstanding. I don't like pesto with alot of basil. This is a perfect combination. I did add a little onion also and fresh spinach from my garden. I used some in a cream sauce that I added to cooked potatoes and it was a huge hit. Thank you Joyce for the great reacipe. Karen
