WHOLE WHEAT PENNE WITH SPINACH-BASIL PESTO

Today I Made:
WHOLE WHEAT PENNE WITH SPINACH-BASIL PESTO and SPINACH STRAWBERRY SALAD for DINNER.
This pesto was super easy to make.
1 cup loosely packed basil+2 cups spinach+3 cloves garlic+1/4 cup pecans+salt+pepper+ 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil= THE BEST PESTO SAUCE EVER!
Process all ingredients ( except olive oil ) in food processor until thoroughly mixed.
Slowly add olive oil while machine is on until completely blended.
Pour over hot pasta and serve.
So simple and tasty.
