Spinach Basil Pesto

This is your classic pesto sauce but, I've added spinach to it!  Mom wins again!  You ate your vegetables and you didn't even know it! 

3 cups packed basil leaves
1 cup packed spinach leaves
1 cup grated parmesan
3/4 cup of lightly toasted pine nuts
2 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Combine all ingredients, except the oil, in the food processor.  Pulse until the ingredients are finely chopped.  With the motor running, slowly pour the oil into the feed tube.  This recipe makes 2 cups of sauce.  Use immediately or freeze for up to a month.
