My Love Affair With Olive Oils

Spinach.......makes a different kind of pesto
This is a wonderful way to sneak a vegetable into a pasta dish. Even spinach haters will love it!
1/4 cup walnuts, toasted
3 cups fresh spinach leaves
1 cup fresh basil leaves
1 clove garlic, peeled and chopped ( I use 2-3 cloves 'cause I love garlic!)
1/2 cup Joe and Son’s EVOO, moderate intensity
Freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
About a cup
Place walnuts, spinach, basil, and garlic in a blender or food processor.
Process until the ingredients are combined.
Drizzle in the EVOO slowly until it is absorbed and the mixture makes a smooth paste.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve over Penne Pasta, Farfalle or Ziti. Sprinkle with grated cheese.
