This has been a great recipe that uses spinach instead of the traditional basil as its base, making it cheaper to make. Great in homemade tomato soup.

Excellent! I followed the recipe, using 3 cups packed spinach, and ended up with about 1.5 cups of concentrated pesto. I was skeptical about it not having salt but I didn't miss it. So far I've had it with spaghetti (about 1 T per bowl) and parmesan, and on crackers with cream cheese and sundried tomatoes. I'll probably freeze the rest. This is a wonderfully economical recipe tastes as good as (and is even healthier than) fresh basil pesto.

Me and 2 daughters, age 6 and 9 LOVE this!!! Yummy on sandwiches or on crackers. Using on a pesto pizza right now!

I thought this was very tasty and easy to make. I like a less oily pesto, so I think I will cut back on the oil next time I make it.
