Oh what to do with arugula today?
Make arugula pesto, of course!
We used a few cups of basil from Kitti's garden and a few cups of fresh arugula plus garlic, lemon zest, freshly grated parmesan, walnuts, and olive oil.
I definitely loved this pesto. As a change from normal basil pesto, the lemon and arugula gave it a kick and made it much more refreshing.
We froze a large amount of the pesto, but the rest we mixed with gnocchi for dinner. On a bed of arugula and with toasted walnuts and parmesan on top, this was a perfect (and oh so green) dinner.
