This was my first time making pesto sauce and I will never buy jarred pesto again! O.M.G. it was so good! And seriously, the easiest to make. Just throw everything in a blender and it's done.
Spinach - 2+ cups
Pine Nuts - 1/2 cup
Garlic - 4 cloves
Parmesan Cheese - 1/2 cup
Olive Oil - 3 Tbsp +/-
Salt - to taste
Green Chile - 1 (optional)
Toss pine nuts in blender first. Blend.
Then add remaining ingredients. Blend until creamy goodness.
If you added the green chile, you can add more spinach and olive oil if it's too spicy.
I loved this pesto on grilled shrimp. And a little goes a long ways. I also made white rice with cilantro essential oils and added spinach and lime to go with it. Such an easy dinner and so yummy.
