Spinach Pesto and Two Confessions

      2 Comments on Spinach Pesto and Two Confessions

I have two confessions to make. First is a pasta confession. I make pasta at least twice a week, mainly because M, my toddler loves it. And like most toddlers, she loves her marinara sauce. But I confess, I’m getting tired of it. Or maybe, I’m just falling into a cooking rut. A fantastic alternative to marinara is pesto. I love the spiciness and complexity of pesto. And it’s so versatile! I love it in sandwiches. It takes a plain grilled cheese to a whole new level. This recipe, in addition to being super yummy is also super healthy – with the addition of spinach.

My second confession is that I don’t like really long recipe posts. When I search for a recipe online, I almost never read the text and scroll straight to the recipe. So I’m going to keep this post short, just the way I like it. Because easy recipes don’t need a whole lot of text 🙂 Let’s dive in!

My recipe is inspired by Closet Cooking’s recipe.
