I love spinach pesto. Quite a bit. Last weekend I was thinking of making pizza and thought it would be nice to have that as the sauce. Until I realized I was out of lemons. I didn’t want to go to the store at 4:30 pm on a Sunday either! I played with a couple of my pesto recipes I had made before and came up with this. It was quite nice and would work great on pasta as well!
- 12 ounce bag spinach
- ¼ cup raw walnuts
- 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 2 Tbsp walnut oil
- 2 Tbsp white balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp garlic
- ¼ tsp fine sea salt and ground black pepper
- ¼ to ½ cup finely grated Pecorino Romano cheese
Add everything to a food processor, pushing down on the spinach leaves to fit. Process on high, scraping as needed, until texture desired. Season to taste, adding more cheese if desired.
Makes enough to dress 2 large deep dish pizzas.
