Today's Recipe:


  • 2.5 oz pkg of basil leaves, stems discarded
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • ½ cup grated pecorino Romano cheese
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Pinch of ground pepper
  • 3 oz of baby spinach or about 1 ½ cups
  • ½ cup EVOO Extra Virgin Olive Oil



  1. Place all ingredients into the food processor with about half of the olive oil.
  2. While blending (about 10-15 seconds), drizzle the rest of the olive oil in until smooth.
  3. This pesto freezes wonderfully. Place in a freezer safe container and spoon out as needed. Frozen pesto can be placed directly into sauces. If you'd like to use the pesto on pasta, pizza or meatballs, place desired amount of pesto on a microwave safe plate. Defrost in 10 second increments. (Should take about 30 seconds) Enjoy!
