Spinach Walnut Pesto

Spinach-Walnut Pesto
1/4 cup walnuts, toasted
3 cups fresh spinach leaves
1 cup fresh basil leaves
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoon grated Parmesean cheese
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Yields: About a cup

Place walnuts, spinach, basil, garlic, salt and pepper in a food processor. Pulse until it forms a paste. Drizzle in oil slowly until the mixture is all combined and makes loose paste.

This is great over whole wheat pasta, or smeared over chicken or turkey and baked.

Yummy! I can't wait for supper!
