Spinach-Walnut Pesto

Spinach-Walnut PestoTraditional basil-and-pine-nut pesto is delicious, but unless you have your own basil plants (or generous friends), it can be an expensive proposition to make at home. This version is significantly easier on the budget, yet still tastes just as fabulous.

½ c packed basil leaves (¾ oz)
2 c packed spinach leaves (3½ oz)
⅓ c chopped walnuts (1½ oz)
½ c grated Romano cheese (1 oz)
2 cloves garlic
½ c olive oil
¼ t salt

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth and well combined.
