    Jamilahs_Kitchen's Note:

    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.

      5 stars! No, 6 stars! Me and my DH loved this pesto. The flavour was wonderful and what a great way to use spinach. I made some minor changes in amounts - a lot more spinach, a bit less oil and a bit less lemon juice. Perfect for us. I didn't use it for pasta but spread it on toasted french bread slices as an appetizer. Next time I will add a little fresh basil if I have it but this pesto is delicious as is. Thank you!
