Spinach Pesto Pasta


This is my version of a Dr. Weil's recipe. The original can be found on his site. I changed the Parmesan to feta, and added it to the sauce, instead of sprinkling on later. Therefore, the feta can be left out, for O's. The entire recipe is probably best suited to A's, but the sauce is yummy on baked veges as well.

  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves (packed) or sprinkling dried basil
