Arugula Walnut Pesto

Genoa, Italy is notably famous for its pesto. And, why not? It's the perfect, fresh condiment, and this arugula walnut pesto is an interesting alternative to its more famous sibling, the basil pesto. I like it on a steak sandwich, tossed with some linguine, or just a simple bruschetta, tossed with sliced cherry tomatoes and a mild cheese. Plus, you can freeze whatever you don't use!
Buon Appetito!

 Ingredients: 3 cups of fresh organic arugula, 1 clove garlic, 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1/3 cup of walnuts, 1/3 cup of freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, sea salt, cracked pepper.
