The other day I made a batch of kale pesto (see the recipe HERE).. after using it on a pizza instead of the tomato sauce, I was looking for another cool idea. I found a fun recipe online and decided to try it. Like always I changed many things. (You can see the original recipe HERE)
I love pesto (vegan pesto!).. it’s so delicious. And by pesto I mean all kinds of pesto.. the reguclar basil kind, kale, broccoli.. sky is the limit.
This recipe is so easy , healthy and so delicious, I will make it again and again.
300 g of multigrains pasta
(I used spaghetti)
2 cups very small potatoes
2 cups packed baby spinach
2/3 cup pesto
(I used my vegan kale and sunflower pesto, see it HERE)
salt, pepper, to taste
- Wash and slice the potatoes.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil over medium heat. Add the baby spinach and cook for 30 seconds. Une a fine sieve to transfer the spinach to a food processor. Don’t throw away the water!
Return the water to a boil and add the pasta and the sliced potatoes. Cook, stirring few times until the pasta and the potatoes are done.
In your food processor, add 1/2 cup of the cooking water and the pesto to the cooked baby spinach. Pulse until you reach a smooth consistency. Add the salt and pepper, than pule 5 seconds again.
Drain the pasta. In the pot, combine the sauce and the pasta. Cook over medium heat while stirring often until everything is hot and thick enough.
Remove from heat, serve and ENJOY!
