SPINACH BASIL PESTO
1-1/2 cups baby spinach
3/4 cup fresh basil leaves

3-4 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 tsp sea salt

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

~ Process all ingredients with only 2 Tbsp of oil in a blender or food processor until
   nearly smooth 
~ Drizzle in remaining oil while processing until smooth
Note: the pesto may taste heavy on the salt or garlic side but balances out when mixed with your pasta 

CHICKEN PESTO PASTA
Noodles - penne, linguine, etc (brown rice noodles, sprouted wheat, buckwheat, etc)
