Roasted Garlic Arugula Pesto

Stacey Lawson


I love arugula on a sandwich and a salad. I also love pesto. I just recently got some arugula at a good price so I decided to make a pesto. It's great on a warm pasta with a delicious peppery taste.

How to Make Roasted Garlic Arugula Pesto


  1. Place garlic cloves in one teaspoon of olive oil and roast on medium until brown.
  2. Add all ingredients to food processor including roasted garlic and its oil. Blend until smooth. You may need more oil if necessary.
  3. Taste for salt and pepper and adjust. Serve over warm crostini as an appetizer or drizzled over steamed artichokes as a side dish. Tonight I am adding it to an artichoke and mushroom pasta dish.
