I love adding sauteed spinach, onion and sundried tomatoes. Delicious! Pesto can be made with fresh basil and parsley or, with a host of other ingredients. Here's a recipe for pesto from my new cookbook, which will release in January! This pesto is fab over Spaghetti Noodles!
Spinach and Sun Dried Tomato Pesto
¼ cup olive oil
2 tbs. melted butter/ghee or vegan margarine
1-2 tbs. fresh parsley
¼ cup fresh basil, chopped
¼ cup sundried tomatoes, drained and chopped
2 cups fresh spinach, washed and drained
¼ cup walnuts or pine nuts
½ cup fresh parmesan cheese or vegan parmesan
Fresh cracked pepper to taste
Melt the butter or butter substitute in a saucepan and then pour into a food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse until the mixture is blended and smooth.
