Spinach Pesto Sandwich and Mushroom Salad

The first time I had this was at one of my aunt's home, and have been hooked on it ever since..but just a few days back i decided to try my hand at it...it is super easy to make, and can be eaten in many different ways..you may make a sandwich, or toss some pasta or tortellini in it.
It is a very good way to make your kids eat spinach if they are fussy eaters....it is healthy ( the recipe for pesto contains spinach, walnuts and olive oil) and with the mushroom salad which goes very well with the pesto it becomes a super healthy dinner. This is the first time i ever ate raw mushrooms and i loved it, so those of you who have never had mushroom salad should try this one.. this is a very good dinner option for working women, me and my sis got a soup, sandwich and salad dinner ready in 15 min at 10 45 pm after an extremely long day... i guess now i should stop beating round the bush and get going with actual recipe

As i have mentioned, i alter it as per availability, so can you, some of ingredients are optional so do not fret if you have one or two missing, try to think of available substitute in your home or one that is easily available in grocery store near you
