About Spaghetti with creamy mustard greens (leaf) pesto

I took inspiration from the master chef himself- Jamie Oliver's mint pesto sauce, where I have used mustard greens (leaf) or as we refer to it in Nepali as 'Rai ko saag' instead of mint to make the pesto which I thought would make a healty and tasty spaghetti dish. I hope you will enjoy the flavors! #foodrevolutionday2016 #jamiesitalianindia #betterbutter
