Fresh Spinach Presto Sauce

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Sauces

 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Yellow onion; chopped
  • 1/2 c Olive oil; divided
  • 3 Cloves garlic; minced
  • 3 c Fresh spinach leaves; packed
  • 2 ts Dried basil
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/4 c Parmesan cheese; grated


Saute the onion and garlic in about 4 tablespoons of the olive oil until
onion is soft and transparent; remove from heat and cool slightly. Spoon
the onion and oil mixture into a blender or food processor. Add spinach,
basil and salt. Process until mixture is finely chopped. With motor
running, pour the remaining 1/4 cup of olive oil in a slow but steady
stream through the feeder hole. Blend to a coarse puree, then stop the
motor, add cheese and process for just a moment more. Yields 1-1/4 cups

She developed this sauce to use on fettuccini because her family doesn't
like classic pesto. "...I found myself dipping into it serendipitously
throughout the week. One night I placed dollops of it atop of our grilled
chicken breasts. Another time it became the basis for a quick pasta salad.
It even worked as a sandwich spread with sun-dried tomatoes, Swiss cheese,
and pickled Greek pepperoncini. Try it as an accent for pork chops or fish
filets too.
