Last night on Election night, I wanted to kick back on the couch, turn on CNN and have some take out pizza. But first I needed to whip up this easy spinach lime pesto to put on top!
Isn't it so neon? It really was that color in real life. Pizza is from Grandma Lucia's and has eggplant, broccoli, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes and basil.
Tonight I took the last bit of pesto I had left and tossed it with hot pasta, black olives and pinenuts. (Sorry for the flash photo!)
Spinach Lime Pesto
1/4 cup slivered almonds
2-3 handfuls of spinach leaves
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
juice of 1 lime
salt and pepper to taste
Blend all ingredients in a blender until it's either a coarse paste or completely creamy and smooth. Your choice.
