Arugula is a tasty low calorie green that is high in antioxidants and packed full of vitamins and minerals. If you are looking to switch things up this arugula pesto recipe is delicious and quite a nice change from traditional basil pesto.
Arugula pesto goes great on just about anything. I like to toss cheese tortellini in the pesto along with chopped tomatoes and black olilves for a cold pasta salad or warm fusilli noodles with artichoke hearts and sun dried tomatoes. Get creative and let me know your favorite arugula pesto dish!
