Any recipe that uses fresh greens from the farmers market AND pasta is going to get a mention. Another recipe from Adrea Bemis at Dishingupthedirt.com. I guess when you live and work on a farm you tend think outside of the grocery store.
We think Andrea's version is great as is. However, walnuts make a good substitute for almonds. If you like a little extra spice a roasted jalapeno or serrano chile(skin removed) makes a good addition to the pesto.
