Homemade Pesto

I look forward all year to making this pesto 
using basil from our very own garden. It pairs well with pasta, 
fresh tomatoes, zucchini, and many other summer favorites.

Homemade Pesto

1/2 c. fresh basil
1 1/2 c. fresh baby spinach
1/4 c. pine nuts
3 cloves garlic
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/4 c. olive oil

1. In a food processor, combine the basil, spinach, pine nuts, garlic, lemon juice, and sea salt.
2. Process until all ingredients are well chopped (about 2 minutes).
3. Drizzle the olive oil into the food processor and process for an additional minute.
4. Serve over your favorite pasta or spaghetti squash.
