Lemon Arugula Pesto (See Jane Make)
Yesterday was a scorcher. The last thing I wanted to eat when I came home was something heavy. I noticed that I had a nearly full container of baby arugula that needed to be used immediately. A huge salad just didn't sound appetizing so I typed "arugula" into Google and pesto is the second phrase that appears (thank goodness for auto-complete, right?). I love arugula--the peppery bite makes it a favorite for me (I love a spicy kick in all forms) and this pesto sounded right up my alley. I ended up spooning it over angel hair pasta and throwing in few cherry tomatoes; all in all, it made for the perfect summer meal.
An added bonus of this meal was that I was able to deflower my new food processor--so far, so good.
