Delicious Pesto Pasta

One of my favorite new pasta recipes!

I'm really into pesto, but I never even thought of making my own...until now! I came across this recipe and knew it was calling my name!

Adapted from Krithi's Kitchen (We doubled the recipe so we could have leftovers)

• 2 cups pasta (we used elbows)
• 1 cup fresh basil
• 1/2 cup fresh spinach
• 4 garlic cloves
• 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
• 1/4 cup olive oil (we used more)
• salt & pepper to taste

Cook the pasta according to the box directions.

While pasta is cooking, combine the rest of the ingredients in a blender. We felt that the mixture needed more liquid, so that's when we added a little extra olive oil.

Once pasta is done, drain and combine with pesto mixture.

Very easy to do and it tastes FABULOUS!


  1. I've always tried the basic basil pesto!! This spinach pesto sounds far more healthier! :)

  2. This sounds really tasty! I like that it uses spinach!

  3. YUMMY!!! The boys would love to eat this too! Thanks hun.

  4. Looks so yummy! I love me some pesto!! Can you taste the spinich? If not, it would be an excellent way for me to get some nutrients without having to taste it.

  5. Mmmm...I love that you added the healthy spinach in with the basil!


I love to hear from you! Please leave me a note!
