myFresha-licious: Creamy Spinach Pesto for Pasta

Creamy Spinach Pesto for Pasta

Here’s my creamy pesto I cooked when one of my highschool friends (Imee Balageo) came to our humble flat and paid us a visit .  My sister Kristine had been bugging me to cook pesto pasta.  I’ve decided, however, to make pesto with cream.  I’d be posting later the recipe for the Pesto sauce.


Fresh Spinach Leaves  – 2 to 3 bundles

Sharon’s Mixed herbs – 2 tsp

Olive oil – 3 tbsp

Garlic, chopped – 5 cloves

Salt & Pepper to taste

Sharon’s white sauce- thick – 1 serving

     see recipe under Sharon’s White Sauce Recipe’s for Pasta and Soups

Cooking Procedure:

1) Clean and take out the leaves of the spinach.

2) In a food processor, blend the spinach, garlic, and olive oil

3) Transfer the processed spinach mixture in a pan and mix with the rest of the ingredients.

4) Cook over low heat until the sauce is thickened.

– Serve this with 400 to 500 g. of pasta noodles.

– or you may use as sauce toppings for steamed fish or poultry.
