Creamy Spinach Pesto for Pasta

Here's my creamy pesto I cooked when one of my highschool friends (Imee Balageo) came to our humble flat and paid us a visit .  My sister Kristine had been bugging me to cook pesto pasta.  I've decided, however, to make pesto with cream.  I'd be posting later the recipe for the Pesto sauce.

Ingredients:

Fresh Spinach Leaves  - 2 to 3 bundles

Sharon's Mixed herbs - 2 tsp

Olive oil - 3 tbsp

Garlic, chopped - 5 cloves

Salt & Pepper to taste

Sharon's white sauce- thick - 1 serving

     see recipe under Sharon’s White Sauce Recipe’s for Pasta and Soups

Cooking Procedure:

1) Clean and take out the leaves of the spinach.

2) In a food processor, blend the spinach, garlic, and olive oil

3) Transfer the processed spinach mixture in a pan and mix with the rest of the ingredients.

4) Cook over low heat until the sauce is thickened.

- Serve this with 400 to 500 g. of pasta noodles.

- or you may use as sauce toppings for steamed fish or poultry.
