Arugula Pesto

This is my Arugula Basil Pesto recipe.  

  • 2 Cups fresh Arugula

  • 2 Cups fresh Basil

  • 8-10 garlic cloves

  • 1 Cup pine nuts- I also used 1/4 cup of almonds in this batch

  • 1 Cup Parmesan grated

  • 1/2 cup Olive Oil

  • 1. Put all the ingredients except the oil in a food processor and pulse until chopped. 

  • 2. Add Olive Oil in through pouring tube.  Process until creamy.

  • 3.  The Pesto is ready!  Quick, easy, and so delicious.  

  • I like to drop tablespoons of the pesto on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and then freeze.  After frozen I put the portions of pesto in an air tight container and use when I need some pesto.  I add the pesto to all sorts of sauces, pasta, pizza, sandwiches etc...   Hope you like this Pesto recipe as much as my family does.
