I am a real deal Italian and I love being Italian. LOVE. IT. I was insistent upon keeping my very Italian last name when I got married because it was so important to me! My people are the creators of some pretty epic food, I mean pasta is magic! Literal, magic. This pesto is super easy and will have even the pickiest of eaters swooning! It’s great with pasta [recipe to follow], veggies, breadsticks, or even a replacement for mayo! The possibilities are endless!!! This oil-free version is seriously guilt-free! So enjoy, and enjoy often!
Makes enough to coat 2 pounds ‘o’ pasta!
3 cups loosely packed basil
2 cups loosely packed spinach
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 huge garlic cloves
1/4 cup pine nuts
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon of veggie stocks
a few solid pinches of salt to taste
Blend in a blender until smooth. Yep, that’s it. AWESOMENESS. I know, right!?
