Bring a saucepan of water to boil, with a pinch of salt, add the pasta and cook until al dente, per package instructions.  Drain the pasta and place in a large bowl.  Meanwhile, in a blender add the spinach, basil, garlic, and lemon zest. Blend until the basil and spinach has been chopped fine, then with the blender still running, add the lemon juice, oil, vinegar, honey and salt. Blend until it resembles pesto, turn off the blender and add additional salt if needed.

This pasta should be stored in the fridge and can be reheated or eaten cold the next day.
