For the pesto
Basil - 2 cups packed
Spinach - 2 cups packed
Fresh garlic - 4 cloves
Olive oil - 1/2 cup
Cashew nuts - 1/2 cup
Parmesan cheese - 1/4 cup (optional)
Wash and dry the basil and spinach leaves.
In a blender combine the basil, spinach, garlic, cheese and cashew nuts. Drizzle the olive oil in middle till you get the desired consistency. Blend in a food processor, till the nuts get ground well and the mixture gets thoroughly combined. If you need a thicker consistency, reduce the amount of oil.
Top the pesto on any cooked pasta and enjoy!
