Penne with Arugula and Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto
Okay... promise is promise right? So here is the mouthwatering dish I posted this past weekend.  I served it with Sautéed Kale and Green Apples and Salmon.  Delish!!!
What is great about this dish is so easy to make and very tasty.  It can be served warm or cold. The holidays are coming and this is a great dish to bring to party. I know I will!  
These are the ingredients you need:
5 cups arugula
2 cups fresh basil leaves
1 cup walnuts
2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes
1 package whole wheat pasta
In a blender or food processor add 2 cups of the arugula along with the other ingredients, except the pasta. Blend the mixture until all the ingredients are well combined.
Cook pasta according to package instructions.  Drain and rinse.  Toss pasta with pesto and fold in remaining 3 cups of arugula.
You can add more sun-dried tomato if desired. This recipe will also work well if you add your favorite nut, like walnut, cashew or almonds.  Either way this one will be a hit whether you are cooking for the family or bringing this beautiful dish to the party.
Enjoy the meal!
I will look forward to your comments, suggestions and re-shares.  Please also visit me on facebook:
