Pasta With Pesto (Shrek Noodles)

I call this recipe Shrek Noodles because of the pretty green color of the sauce.  This recipe is quite delicious and even my non-spinach eaters will eat this.

1 1/2 lbs. pasta, cooked
1 lb. spinach, lightly steamed
1 large pkg. fresh basil, leaves only (about 30 leaves)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 large tomato
4 oz. shredded Parmesan cheese
3 cloves garlic
Sea Salt to taste
1/2 cup walnuts

Puree the spinach, basil, oil, tomatoes, Parmesan, garlic, salt, and walnuts in a high-powered blender.  Serve tossed with cooked pasta, sprinkled with extra shredded Parmesan cheese.  Serves 8.
