Day 73: Pasta with Arugula Pesto

Lunch today was potato leek soup. I will post the recipe tomorrow. L. and I thought it was delightful, S. not so much. We had the Stuffed cabbage from the freezer with it.

Orichette with Arugula Pesto and Three Bean Salad
Here's how easy this was
1. boiled the pasta
2. took 3 cubes of Arugula Pesto from the freezer (made with the overabundance of Arugula in the CSA shares at the end of the summer)
3. Mixed 1 with 2 and a little pasta cooking water, a little olive oil and a little Parmesan.
4. Served with extra Parmesan, salt & pepper

L:. and S, had Morningstar Farms Chick'n patties with their pasta. I had semi-frozen 3 bean salad - picture and story to follow.  S. said the Arugula is too bitter. I kind of like the taste.


  1. I wish I could comment from my home computer...but alas I cannot.
    Your blog makes me very hungry!
    I can't wait to try this with some arugala next time we have it!
    I have only made pestos with basils (a variety of basils) and parsley.
    What CSA do you belong to?
