It’s winter. Spring is right around the corner, but you are craving the fresh taste of summertime food now. Specifically, the garlicky, creamy, awesomeness known as pesto.
But you won’t have basil in your herb garden for several months, and basil in the store is so. darn. expensive!
You could buy pre-made pesto from the store, but homemade always tastes better (and it’s cheaper and healthier)!
So what do you do?
You make Spinach Pesto, that’s what you do.
It might not taste the same as traditional pesto with fresh basil as the base, but you won’t care. Because it tastes awesome. And fresh. And awesome. So go make some!
