Arugula Walnut Pesto

Submitted by: BUSYWIFEANDMOM

Introduction

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 grows quickly and easily. This is a great use for it if you have an over abundance as I did! This also freezes well.

Ingredients

    Arugula, 2 cups, packed
    Walnuts, .5 cup
    Garlic, 3 cloves
    Olive Oil, .5 cup
    Parmesan Cheese, grated, .5 cup

Directions

Clean arugula. I take the stems off, but have also read that it's not necessary, so it's up to you.

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!
