walnut spinach basil pesto

What happens when you don't have all of the "normal" ingredients for something on hand? Magic.

Walnut Spinach Basil Pesto
Makes about 3/4 cups

1/3 cup walnuts
2 garlic cloves
1 cup spinach
1 cup fresh basil
1/3-1/2 cup olive oil
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Toast walnuts in a 350 degree oven until golden, about 8 minutes. Process walnuts, garlic, spinach, and basil in a food processor until well mixed, scraping down the side of the bowl as necessary. Continue to process while pouring the olive oil slowly through the top of the processor, until desired consistency is reached. Enjoy over your favorite pasta or as a fresh veggie dip!
