Spinach Pesto

Spinach Pesto!... Throw all the ingredients in the blender and you end up with an amazing spread/topping for sandwiches or pasta dishes!  This is a family favorite!

I adore pesto. Plain and simple fact.

It is SO easy to make and I love to throw it on or in so many different things.  I love my family’s version because it incorporates spinach, adding a great flavor and saving a bit on money. It still uses basil, but not tons of it.  Basil is absolutely wonderful but it definitely can get a bit pricey.

I love to throw this on spaghetti with some sun-dried tomatoes and crumbled feta or in my sandwiches. You could use this recipe for so many different things, and believe me, I do!  This particular time, I put it on my sandwich.  This recipe really dresses up your ordinary sandwich and makes it something fancy.  I felt like this Turkey Pesto Ciabatta sandwich would be something I ordered from a nice restaurant, when really, it took two seconds to put together and a fraction of the cost.
