Pesto meatballs, pasta and spinach

Remember back in January when I went on a pesto craze? Well, this was the last meal I made with the Almond and Cashew Pesto back then. I found the photos in my archives and realised I hadn’t put it up yet.

yummy!

I used the remaining meatballs from the Pesto Meatball Sauce, and the last of the pesto to coat the capellini.

I do remember that I had purchased some palak spinach but hadn’t paid much attention when I did it. So many of the leaves were in bad shape and rotting, there was too little left to actually use the spinach as a vegetable side. I decided to cook it in a bit of garlic and mix it with the meatballs.
