- 1 (6 ounce) bag fresh Baby Spinach
- 1⁄4 cup fresh basil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt

These were brilliant. A perfect accompaniment to pasta, but I think they'd probably be great as an appetiser too. I didn't have the time or inclination to make pizza dough, so I just used pre rolled shortcrust pastry. I don't know how much difference it would have made, but they were easy this way and superb!
RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I'm a stay at home mom of a 5 year old boy, a 3 year old girl and an almost year old sweet baby girl. I love to cook (it's what I do for fun as well as out of necessity) and to entertain--and am finally learning to enjoy doing the dishes afterward. :) My husband loves to try new foods and likes lots of flavor, so it makes cooking really fun! We also have recently been studying a lot on health and nutrition and have been enjoying experimenting with new recipes that have a lot more whole food ingredients. I am learning why I always liked home-cooked food better than packaged and prepared stuff. :) I love my family and enjoy feeding them well! I mainly post recipes for my own convenience (nutritional facts, to get them off the little scrap of paper and where I can find them...) but if anyone else can use or enjoy them, go right ahead! Maybe someday I will get all of mine on here, but for now, I love looking at all of everyone else's recipes and have gotten some great "keepers" for our family. Please note that cooking times on any of my recipes are just guesses as I rarely have the opportunity to cook an entire dish or meal without interruption. :) I usually start dinner around 3:30 or 4 while the kids are napping, then pick up again around 5:30 or 5:45 and still get interrupted several times! :) <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
