I love making this pesto to get more spinach into my kids! I actually way prefer it to store bought pesto, or basil pesto! It only has a few ingredients, and is super easy to make.

I love serving it on pasta, on sandwiches, or anything you would put pesto on!

What You Will Need

  1. Spinach
  2. Parmesan cheese
  3. Lemon juice
  4. Olive oil
  5. Garlic


You can store the pesto in the fridge for 5 days, or in the freezer for 3 months!

    Literally so delicious and easy – My daughter loved it and My husband and I prefer this to regular pesto! I used green lentil pasta and it tasted great on that as well. 🙂

    We LOVE this pesto! I live in Italy and everyone I’ve made this for has raved about it. I started using this instead of store-bought in my pesto/Parmesan pinwheels and they’re one of my daughter’s favorite things.
