Spicy Pesto

This is a recipe I found from Giada De Laurentiis, however I changed it slightly. This pesto can be used on pizza, noodles, eggs, or as a smear on a sandwich. Make one batch and freeze individual servings and remember a little bit of pesto goes a long way . . .

3 oz. Baby spinach
3 oz. Arugula
1 Cup Walnuts
1 Jalapeno pepper
1/4 Cup Cold pressed olive oil
2 Garlic cloves
1 tsp. Kosher salt

*Remember always choose organic ingredients when possible.

Add all ingredients into food processor and blend to pesto consistency, that's it!

  1. Excited to try. If I don't like spicy, will it still be good with out the Jalapeno pepper. Also, could I substiture chard for spinach?
