Ok this is my last one and then i've caught up!
I'm a big fan of pesto and thought this looked like a great quick dinner option.
Whilst looking for frozen spinach at the supermarket (sold out?!? - i always buy fresh but decided it was time to try frozen) i stumbled across frozen basil! So frozen basil is what i used. I do have basil in my garden but then none would be left if i picked enough and i was planning on buying a couple of bunches in the fruit shop until i saw this.
Maybe it wasn't the best choice - although it was still green it had lost that vibrancy you see with fresh basil. And the flavour was nice but i think the fresh basil would be better.
