Fusilli with Spinach Walnut Pesto

This brilliant green pesto is a great pick-me-up in the dead of winter.  It also allows the sly mother to add more spinach to the family diet without any children being the wiser.  It makes a quick weeknight meal with the addition of a salad and some crusty bread.  Try adding a few tablespoons of ricotta to the pasta for extra protein.

Looking for a statement salad?  Look no further.  This is a quick prep salad that could be made for a weeknight dinner, but has the bold presentation and complex flavors a special occasion salad.
