This pesto is unique due to the arugula, which gives it a peppery bite balanced with the sweetness of almonds and a touch of tasty cheese. Use as a spread or on pasta. It's addictive!
1 1/2 cups baby arugula leaves
1 1/2 cups fresh basil leaves
2 cup pine nuts
1 cup almonds
greated parmesan cheese
5 cloves garlic
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Place the arugula, basil, pine nuts, almonds, and garlic in a food processor, and chop to a coarse paste. Mix in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Process until well blended and smooth.
Then, cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling water until done. Drain.
In a large bowl, mix pesto mixture into pasta. Stir in grated cheese. Enjoy!
