Arugula Pesto

From Recipes from America’s Small Farms


2 cups loosely packed Arugula                          2 TBSP Parmesan or Romano cheese

¼ cup walnuts                                                  salt and fresh ground black pepper

minced garlic to taste                                        ¼ cup olive oil


Combine the Arugula, walnuts, garlic, cheese and salt and pepper in a food processor.  Pulse until well blended.  Gradually add the oil through the feed tube of the processor with the motor running, processing until the mixture is a smooth sauce.  Spread on crusty bread, mix with pasta, or spread on sandwiches for a little extra ‘zing’.
