Check out this kid-friendly and school-safe nut-free pesto! This pesto has a mild taste with half basil and half spinach. Panko bread gives a crunchy texture without any use of nuts, but you can also make it creamier by adding pasta cooking water. I got the inspiration to use breadcrumbs in pesto from chef Massimo Bottura.
