About this recipe: Put weeds to good use in a sauce that's bursting with so many vitamins and minerals, it could be called a tonic. It's a perfect complement to mild fish like halibut or grilled chicken, or add it to pasta or minestrone soup.
If you can't find enough nettles, you can bulk it up with spinach or other greens.
Place pesto in a covered container and pour a layer olive oil over the surface.
Try making nettle pesto pasta! Simply boil your favourite type of pasta; drain the pasta, reserving some of the pasta cooking water to add back in with a couple of tablespoons of the pesto mixture. It makes for a creamier pasta.
