Very nice pesto. I've broken the top to my food processor so I tried to make this in a blender. Just did not work for me. I have a mini electric mincer thing I bought at a fair once. I had to do it in batches, but that worked much better. I served this a couple of ways. I topped some sliced ciabiatta rolls with the pesto, dabbed on little bits of ricotta and then some fresh grated asiago. Broiled til the cheese melted. DH and I really enjoyed that. I also tried it mixed with some orzo, which was good, but not as good as the bread. Thanks for a great new way to use spinach! Made for PRMR Tag Game.
I bought all the ingredients for this, and then realised that being in Europe, you probably used english spinach for this, as opposed to Silver beet. However, I had the silver beet, so I used that!! I halved the recipe and made it with a hand held blender. The flavour was excellent, and the colour super! The garlic came thru, very crisply. I tested this on 2 friends, and we all agreed it was very good, the only "improvement" that we all agreed on, is next time I will keep out some of the pine nuts, and chop them and stir thru at the end. Thanks Kiwidutch, a keeper for me.
