 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/4   c            Walnuts
   12       oz           Spinach, washed & stemmed
      1/2   c            Basil leaves
    3       tb           Olive oil
    2       tb           Miso, any variety
 
   Toast walnuts in a dry skillet over medium heat, or on
   a baking sheet at 350F for 3 minutes.  Set aside.
   Steam spinach until just wilted.  When cool enough to
   handle, remove excess moisture with paper towels or a
   salad spinner. Blend spinach, walnuts & remaining
   ingredients in a food processor or blender until the
   mixture resembles a rough paste.  Serve immediately
   tossed with hot pasta or refrigerate in an air-tight
   container for up to 1 week.
