Something you should know, I am a sucker for bowtie pasta, it’s just so cute. And the sad news is that I can’t find gluten free bowtie pasta, so I buy regular gluten-filled bowties for Ryan and let him have all the fun. But this spinach pesto sauce could be paired with any type of pasta noodle.
When I say this is a super quick fix for dinner, I mean boil the pasta and while that’s happening, blend the rest of the ingredients in a food processor (or blender, but food processors are pretty handy!).
Now that I am growing my own basil in my pallet garden (check out how I recycled an old shipping pallet into a garden wall here!) this recipe is super easy because it doesn’t even need fresh spinach, it calls for frozen.
Oh yeah, and it calls for these guys – pine nuts!
We love trying new pasta recipes and really liked this one. We’re going to try a parsley pesto sauce next!
