When you love eating pasta like me, you have to find something new to accommodate them every day, although I must admit that a simple piece of butter and freshly grated Parmesan is enough to treat myself! So here’s a pesto made with spinach which is a often unloved vegetable but I’ve learned to appreciate it because of this recipe precisely. A little lemon acidity gives this pesto a boost.
Ingredients list: Spinach Pesto Recipe
- 3/4 ounce (20g) fresh spinach
- 3/4 ounce (20g) of pine nuts
- 3/4 ounce (20g) salted ricotta
- A well-flavored olive oil
- Juice of a fresh lemon
- Pepper from the mill
Wash the spinach leaves and pat them dry with a paper towel.
Cut ricotta into small pieces.
Put spinach, ricotta, pine nuts in your blender bowl and mix until you obtain a thin puree.
Transfer the mixture to a bowl, add olive oil, lemon and pepper.
Mix thoroughly and taste.
Next time try replacing the ricotta with fresh goat cheese, it’s even better!
So how do you find this pesto recipe?
