What to do with leftover arugula? Make a salad? Boooooring.
Actually, I do love an arugula salad, lil’ goat cheese. oh delish. But I wanted something more substantial so I decided to try something I keep seeing- arugula pesto. Arugula instead of basil, and walnuts in place of the pine nuts. What could be wrong with that? Absolutely nothing!! I followed directions from Elise, the only thing I changed was to slightly dial back the garlic, which I’m happy I did, it was very strong with only 5 cloves!
Night one it mixed with spaghetti, diced tomatoes and topped with ground rosemary chicken sausage:
Later in the week I made a toasted open-faced sandwich with baked chicken, tomato sauce, and topped with a wedge of Laughing Cow garlic & herb cheese- WOW. SO GOOD.
I’ve been a bit distracted this week- busy dog-sitting my favorite dog, Ellie!
