CREAMY SPINACH PESTO

This is such a great way to use up spinach. Here’s another example of how just a few fresh ingredients come together in just minutes to create a flavor-packed sauce. Use it on anything and everything. I love to spread it in sandwiches, to use it as a pizza sauce, stir it into pasta, and to dip my veggies in.

      Yes, this pesto can be frozen. My favorite way to freeze it is in ice cube trays 🙂 Once frozen, just transfer the pesto cubes to a freezer bag and pop into soups, stews, or pasta when you need it. Enjoy!
