|Pesto is traditionally made with basil, but other herbs and greens can be equally delicious. Arugula pesto is peppery and slightly spicy – try it with pasta for a simple summer meal.|
|Directions||Place almonds in the food processor and finely chop. Add everything else and process into a thick paste.
Alternatively, you can finely chop the arugula and mix it with the other ingredients.
Serve with pasta, adding a little more oil if necessary to help it coat the noodles evenly.
|Notes||Pesto freezes well, so make a big batch when fresh arugula is abundant, then freeze it to enjoy throughout the winter.
