Best Pesto

Don't ask me about measurements on this one...

a lot of garlic (a whole bulb, maybe)
pine nuts
a bunch of fresh basil
a bunch of fresh parsley
a bunch of fresh spinach
a nice hunk of Parmigiano Reggiano
a lot of olive oil

Okay, you know the drill with pesto. It's just a bunch of stuff all mashed up together, resulting in a green paste-like thing.

I saw this one on some tv show. They didn't give measurements, either. I think some cheese shop out West uses all these ingredients for their famous pesto. So I tried it, and it's great.

I've made pesto before, out of different ingredients. I've never *combined* ingredients like this one does. And it produces something special.
