Spinach and Goat Cheese Pesto Recipe

by katerina on March 29, 2006

Not sure the picture does this dish justice, this is delicious and super easy. It does require a food processor or blender in order to blend up the pesto but its worth it. I literally put the water on to boil and don’t start making the pesto until the pasta is in the water. I think this would be really good with the addition of roast garlic, however that would up the prep time.
