excellent...i'm loving this...

Fast dinner...

Pasta with homemade spinach pesto

bag of pre-washed spinach
bunch of fresh basil
pine nuts and or walnuts
garlic cloves
extra virgin olive oil
bowtie or spiral pasta
parmesan cheese

boil pasta

peel a garlic clove or 2, add to blender or food processor.

add a couple handfuls of spinach, and several leaves of basil. Add some pine nuts, walnuts, and a handful of parmesen cheese, add some salt and pepper. and a little olive oil.

start machine, drizzle more olive oil till paste like.
taste, see if it needs more salt, pepper, if too garlicy add honey, and more spinach...
taste, remember pasta will assist...and no need to heat pesto as pasta will do that...

add some pesto to bowl and pour pasta in, and stir, cheese in pesto will melt...making a 10 minute dinner.

you can always cook up some sausage or chicken and slice it up and add it to the pasta...
