“This recipe is from the cookbook Greens, Glorious Greens. Just mix all the ingredients in a food processor, then toss with pasta. I use pre-minced garlic to speed up the process even more. Note: the '4 servings' from this recipe is for if you're using it as a main dish. As a side dish I've found that it feeds 8. Freeze any leftovers for later.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place peeled garlic in the workbowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Process to chop. Add the spinach, basil and parsley leaves and process to chop.
  2. While the motor is running, add the olive oil and nuts, starting with the lesser amount of olive oil. Add the lemon juice and process again. If the pesto seems too dry, add the rest of the olive oil or additional lemon juice.
  3. Season to taste with salt and black pepper and serve on freshly cooked pasta.
