Lower Fat Pesto Sauce

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

I tried to enter this as a spark recipe but it was too tiresome a project. They only have basil measured in Tbs, # of leaves, or grams.

4 c. Fresh Basil Leaves
4 c. Fresh Spinach Leaves
2 T. fresh lemon juice
4 cloves garlic
1 c. pine nuts
1 1/2 c. shredded Parmesean Cheese
1/2 c. olive oil
3/4 c. fat free half & half

Toss all ingredients into a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Serve tossed with pasta, as a sandwich spread, or over grilled meats, fish, or chicken.

    Hey I just saw this blog and had to share what I do.
    I don't eat the regular pesto because the flavors are a bit strong for me but I buy packaged pesto like Knorr and I only add about 3/4 cup of water and no oil and it gives a nice smooth texture and great flavor.
    I use it for my oven roasted tomato pizza on eggplant or zucchini instead of bread.
    Yum. Just made it yesterday again.
    Anyway one more way to reduce the fat.
    Thought you might like to know.
    Have a great day.

    What do you think would happen if one left out the oil all together?
