Pesto is awesome. Kids can easily grow all plant ingredients, mix them in a blender, feel the joy (and eat every noodle!). In every class, 2/3 of the children vote green noodles "very good." I've even had a few kids claim green noodles were the best food they'd ever had. Only a few children in most classes rate pesto "OK." After a completed green noodle garden day, only one or two children say pesto is something they "wouldn't eat even if they were starving."
1 part combination basil, mint, parsley
1/2 part spinach

1/4 part parmasean cheese
1/4 part mac nuts
at least one clove garlic (garlic to taste)

Harvest herbs and spinach from garden. Wash thouroughly. Place all ingredients in bike-powered blender. Peddle until smooth. Combine pesto with noodles, or use as spread on bread, or pizza sauce.
