Spinach Pesto

We do cheese still on a rare basis, and this was good enough to share if any of you are going to do cheese.  In fact, I might say it was one of the tastiest pestos I've had.  We loved it!  

Those of you who are more experienced, how do you think this would be with nutritional yeast substituted for the parmesan cheese?

Spinach Pesto
  • 1 Cup Fresh spinach
  • 1/8 cup walnuts (or other nuts)
Pulse in food processor until blended.
  • 1/3 Cup olive oil
  • 1/2 Cup parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper
Blend altogether and use to top pasta.

  1. We are still having cheese. We are putting it in the "sparingly," category though. I am trying REALLY hard to not use it regularly- but as a special occasion, or weekend type thing, and even then not much.

    I LOVE pesto. Love it. We used to have pesto pasta a lot. We topped it with fresh chopped tomatoes which I think goes excellently with the basil flavor.

    I think Parm is a good cheese to keep around- one that is easy to use sparingly- just as a topper and whatnot.

    We'll give this recipe a go. Thanks Shay!
