I halved the recipe, which amounts to about a cup or so. The only thing I omitted were the pine nuts; they are somewhat pricey and I don't particularly care for their flavour. That said, I increased the amount of walnuts to compensate. I used 1/4 cup of sliced black olives from a can and reduced the Parmesan to an equal amount as the Romano. I upped the garlic to 3 large cloves. I may have used a little more EVOO as I maybe have used a tad too much spinach. I love how the spinach mellows the basil a bit, as it can be an overpowering flavour. The sample spoonful I took tasted amazing; can't wait to see how it pairs with my pasta and pizza dinner I have planned later this week. Most likely going to be my go-to recipe for 'green' pesto!
