 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       c            Tightly packed spinach,
                         Washed and stemmed
    2       tb           Broken pine nuts or
                         Shelled walnuts
    2       lg           Cloves of garlic, peeled
                         Salt
      1/2   c            Olive oil
      1/2   c            Freshly grated
                         Parmesan cheese
    2       tb           Freshly grated
                         Romano cheese
 
         Place spinach, pine nuts, garlic, and 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. of salt, if
   desired, in a food processor fitted with the steel blade or a blender jar.
   Pulse several times to begin chopping and blending the ingredients. Then
   turn on machine at high speed and pour in the olive oil in a steady stream.
   Blend until the mixture is a smooth paste. If you are using a blender you
   will have to stop and start the machine occasionally to give the
   ingredients a stir. When the ingredients are pureed, transfer to a bowl and
   stir in the cheeses. Blend thoroughly.
   
   For parsley pesto, substitute 2 c. of parsley for the spinach.
