Last night, I ran out of my basic pesto. I know, it’s a grievous event. And then, I realized that I only have half the amount of basil that I’d normally use. So I rummaged around my refrigerator, and found a package of spinach in the bottom drawer–luckily, also, because it was probably on the verge of rotting. Pesto-ing the spinach would save it. I tend to freeze half of my pesto batch anyway (and you should too, it keeps very well). Otherwise, I’m fairly capable of finding other people to share the pesto with.
