Enjoy this healthy pasta recipe with the goodness of both basil and spinach. Pesto is healthy and can be consumed daily in moderation, just like with many nice things in life. It is packed with nutrients, also heavy in fat and calories. Pesto gives your body the resources it needs to maintain cell health and keep your heart healthy because it is high in vitamins, minerals, and monounsaturated fats.
