IntroductionArugula grows quickly and easily. This is a great use for it if you have an over abundance as I did! This also freezes well. Arugula grows quickly and easily. This is a great use for it if you have an over abundance as I did! This also freezes well.
Arugula, 2 cups, packed
Walnuts, .5 cup
Garlic, 3 cloves
Olive Oil, .5 cup
Parmesan Cheese, grated, .5 cup
If you don't like a strong garlic taste you may roast the unpeeled cloves by placing them in a hot, dry skillet and cooking them until they have a few brown spots on them; let them cool a bit, then peel. In same pan, lightly toast the walnuts.
Combine arugula, walnuts and garlic in food processor; drizzle oil in slowly while processing. Remove mix and add parmesan.
Can be served over pasta, with crackers, as a spread for sandwiches or pizza. Enjoy...in moderation!
Number of Servings: 6
