These past few weeks have been really crazy. I missed my camera, missed visiting my favorite blogs and there is so much to catch up. In between all the packing and unpacking, I was hardly getting any time to breathe. Yes, we moved to a new apt and we are still settling down. Today, I found some time in hand to share one of our all-time favorite sauce for pasta, favorite spread for bread and favorite dip for the chips - Pesto!
I don't remember the first time when I had pesto and how did I react to it. I don't even remember when it became my favorite. All I know is that it's easy to make at home, it's quick and it's always super-yummy. There are so many different types of pesto sauce that you can never get tired of it. I decided to choose some fresh baby spinach for this recipe.
I know that basil pesto is more flavorful and yes, we absolutely love the classic pesto. At times, we like to change it up with other herbs and hence, the spinach pesto with roasted garlic. I love garlic in every form but roasted garlic is so out of the worldly delicious and it takes absolutely no effort to make it.
Cut half an inch from the top, put in an aluminum foil, drizzle some olive oil, sprinkle some salt and wrap it up tight. Let it roast in the oven for about 35 minutes at 400F and that's it!
If you have never tried spinach pesto with roasted garlic, go ahead and give this a try. It's not only flavorful but it is also more creamy and sweet.
