Spinach Pesto

Spinach Pesto

In this Spinach Pesto recipe, I have used Spinach with Basil for a milder, sweeter and healthier version of pesto. Spinach pesto can be made in advance. This can be store in air tight container for up to a week in fridge and for 15 days in the freezer. Whenever you are ready to use, boil your favorite pasta, toss it in spinach pesto and serve for an easy weeknight meal paired with salad and crusty bread.

This Spinach Pesto recipe is so easy to make, packed full of healthiness and looks so pretty. This taste great in sandwiches too. I didn’t have the pine-nuts on hand so I have used walnuts in this recipe. But if you have pine nuts, use that. I have shared recipe of Zucchini Pesto Pasta recipe, which is one of my families favorites.
