Simple flavorful wholesome, made using fresh greens from our kitchen garden.
For the Arugula/Kale Pesto
2 cups Arugula/Kale tightly packed
1/2 cup pine nuts/walnuts/cashewnuts
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 cloves of garlic
Generous drizzle of olive oil
Blend the above ingredients onto a smooth paste.
For the Pasta
Boil your fav pasta according to package directions along with salt and a drizzle of oil. Drain.
Add the Arugula Pesto the cooked pasta along with some cream…
and simmer till sauce thickens to coat pasta nicely. Adjust salt as needed
Serve immediately, with a sprinkle of black pepper and freshly grated parmesan cheese.
PS: the amount of cream and pesto added will vary according to individual taste. Adding more pesto let’s you enjoy the unique peppery taste of Arugula. For kids, I add more cream, to make the sauce milder.
