    I substituted the wine vinegar with wine, which was a great idea. If I were to make it again, I'd leave off the salt. We're salt-reduced now, and it really isn't needed with the other strong flavors there. I stirred my pesto in to (heavenly) cream cheese, and warmed that all up with cut up boneless chicken breasts sauteed in (unsalted) butter and onions. I served it over (No Yolk) egg noodles. I thought it was a great meal, but hubby, being a confirmed meat and potatoes man, treated the meal like a murder suspect. He did not take seconds. Oh, well. I loved it.

    Basil pesto is the best but this is very good as well as the flavour comes mainly from the other ingredients.

    Pestos are can be made with many things. Basil is a classic but try it with mint, coriander, parsley, broccoli, peppers and the list is endless.

    Haven't made pesto with spinach. I always use fresh basil. Saving this one as we both love spinach. Thanks.

    I make this, too, although sometimes I add a little cream cheese to make it silkier.
