Presto…pesto

July 26, 2012

Well, I love pesto. On pasta hot or cold…on pizza…even in potato salad. But, I’ve never had arugula pesto. How did this happen? I love arugula too and yet this had somehow missed my plate. When I found this recipe , which couldn’t be simpler, and tweaked it based on what was at hand…I had a hit. The simple ingredients provided a great lemony mix…fresh. There was no waiting  for a pizza or focaccia dough to rise so I split a small Syrian wood baked loaf, spread the pesto and topped it with some bocconcini  mozzarella…simple…perfect.
