Makes about 2 cups of Pesto
4 cloves of garlic
1 orange, zest and 1/4 cup fresh juice
1/2 cup toasted walnuts (or pine nuts, hazelnuts or almonds)
3 cups packed of Arugula washed, dried, stems removed and discarded
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional) or freshly ground pepper
Using a food processor with steel blade, combine the garlic, walnuts,
orange zest and juice.
Add arugula. Slowly drizzle in olive oil forming a paste.
Remove pesto to a bowl. If using immediately stir in cheese and taste
for salt or prepare pesto for freezer adding cheese after thawing.
