Spinach Spaghetti Pasta

           Pasta and Pizza  always holds its first place in kids choices. Considering their health we need to take care of the food they intake. So I always sneak the veggies in their diet with their favorite food.. I adapted the concept from pesto sauce and implemented with spinach in place of basil and almonds in place of pine nuts in this recipe which tasted great.  Try this at your home and let me know your feedback..
