Another home grown recipe today, this time a meal that Popeye would love.
Firstly, grow some English Spinach!
Then pick the spinach. Simple so far.
Then find an energetic child to wash the leaves with the salad spinner. Look at those muscles. Ben was so fast it blurred the photo!
In your food processor, add all the spinach, parsley, a glop of olive oil, handful of unsalted cashews, four tablespoons of grated, home made Parmesan cheese, and a clove of garlic. Whiz until it becomes a paste like consistency like the picture below. Add more olive oil if necessary. Salt and pepper to taste. Noice!
Cook up your favourite pasta, in this case it was organic spaghetti, and toss through the pesto. Serve topped with grated parmesan and freshly cracked pepper.
Simple, quick, and absolutely delicious! Ben is not normally a spinach fan, but he scoffed down the lot. A great way to get the boy to eat his greens.
