Spinach Pesto

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Jamilahs_Kitchen

I don't like nuts in my pesto and I like spinach better than basil so I came up with this fast pesto recipe and I love it. I never measure but I tried to put it into measurments. It's best not to warm the Pesto mixture as it doesn't need it.

I really liked this recipe. I added a 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. DH thoought it seemd to be missing something. He doesn't care for the nuts in regular pesto, so he looking forward to trying this recipe. I think next time I'll try it with shrimp or chicken. I added a 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne.
