Many thanks to Nina W.
Makes 1 to 1 1/2 cups.
2 med. garlic cloves

1 c. fresh spinach
1/4 c. parsley
3 tbsp. pine nuts
1/2 c. olive oil
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
In a food processor fitted with a steel blade, process the garlic cloves until pureed.
Add the basil, spinach and parsley and process until finely chopped.
Add the pine nuts; finely chop.
With the blades turning, slowly pour in the olive oil in a fine stream and process until the oil is absorbed.
Add the pepper.
If using Parmesan, add it just before using.
