Spinach-Roasted Red Bell Pepper Pesto

The other night for dinner, I wanted something fresh.  And just my luck, our spinach is coming in nice, so I decided to whip up some Pesto.  I love making's nice to have something different on our pastas over than Red Sauce.

~Spinach from my garden~

I threw in some Garlic Bread & Peas, and the family was happy.
