Basil & Spinach Pesto Sauce

Basil & Spinach Pesto Sauce


1 1/2 cups fresh basil leaves
3/4 cup fresh spinach leaves
1/2 cup toasted pine nuts or almonds
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 cloves garlic, crushed
3/4 tsp. Kosher salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
2 Tbsp. Olive oil
1/3 cup additional olive oil


Place ingredients, minus additional olive oil, into a food processor and blend until almost smooth, scraping sides of bowl with a spatula as necessary. Drizzle reserved 1/3 cup olive oil into the mixture while processing; process until smooth. Serve a small amount of pesto over your favorite width of cooked Mrs. Miller’s Homemade Noodles.

Note: Add cooked chicken or shrimp if desired. Store leftovers in the refrigerator or freeze in ice cube trays, tightly covered. You may also use all basil leaves instead of using any spinach. Delicious!
