Sardinia to Suffolk - the best alternative pesto

Whilst staying with some Italian friends in Sardinia 4 years ago, I was taught how to make this delicious Sardinian Pesto. I couldn't remember the recipe exactly so had to wing it a little. It's a definite winner! Dip, smother and cover...this pesto is so versitile.

Ingredients (serves 4)

- 16g basil
- 16g spinach
- 220g tomatoes
- 50g almonds
- juice of 1/2 a lemon
- cloves of one garlic
- 3tbsp olive oil
- 20g parmesan, grated
- 20g cheddar, grated

1. Blend everything together apart from the cheese for 5 seconds, scrape down the sides with a spatular, then add the cheese and blend for another 10 seconds. 

Serve stirred into pasta, smothered on salmon, or spread onto toast.
