Arugula Pesto 2

Sara Jones, Tucson CSA

Spicy Arugula is a great herb for pesto. Add or substitute
some basil for variety and use whatever nuts you have on
hand. Serve tossed with pasta or spread on a sandwich.

1 bunch Arugula
2-3 cloves garlic
½ cup toasted walnuts
¼ cup olive oil
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

Wash and dry arugula. Pulse garlic and walnuts in food
processor or blender until coarsely ground. Add the
arugula (and basil if using) and olive oil, and continue to
pulse to desired consistency. Add the cheese last, and then
season with salt and pepper to taste.
