Number of Servings: 4


    Pasta, fresh, spinach, 16 oz cooked
    Arugala, 6 cups raw
    Oil: White Truffle, 1 tbsp
    Garlic, 3 clove
    Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 tbsp
    Lemon, fresh squeezed
    Parmesan Cheese, shredded, 2 tbsp
    *Pine Nuts, 1 tbsp toasted


Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Saute the garlic in the warm oil for about a minute or two. Saute the arugala briefly, just to wilt the leaves. Blend the arugala with the truffle oil, lemon juice, cheese, and pine nuts. A little cooking water from the pasta may need to be added to thin the pesto slightly. Serve over warm cooked pasta.
