I went to my parents house last weekend to celebrate mothers day and had a bunch of food in the house to use up. So I went pesto crazy. Above is an Arugula Pesto using 1/2 pinenuts and 1/2 walnuts (i ran out of pine nuts) Now I LOVE basil pesto! So I was never to keen on making pesto with anything else. But with a box of baby arugula left over that wasn't going to survive the weekend I just went for it. I will forever now be using my leftover arugla to make pesto. It was so good. I dare say I might have even liked it better then my beloved basil pesto.
It's not a toasted bagel with peanut butter but the next best thing. Toasted leftover ciabatta with peanut butter. My favorite breakfast.
The above mentioned Arugula Pesto
The not as delicious Basil Pesto. I had to make it in the blender because my quisenart was in the dishwasher with VwaV alfreda sauce on it that only the dishwasher could clean. I will never use the blender again. I had to use so much more olive oil then I like using and it just didn't taste the same. (for some reason the aruglua pesto in the blender came out perfect...who knows? I believe arugula just want's to be a scene stealer)
