Spinach Pesto

A great pesto recipe I use over rice pasta.

4 cups spinach leaves, packed and rinsed
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup walnuts or pine nuts
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon lemon juice (optional)

Place spinach and basil in food processor and puree.
Add garlic, nuts, and sea salt and puree again, gradually adding olive oil.
Blend until mixture is a thick, smooth paste.
Add lemon juice and parmesan and puree until blended
