Getting started on herbs

Arugula Pesto Pasta

I didn't make the sauce for the pasta with arugula pesto and pine nuts pictured above, however I liked the variation from basil based pesto. It was so simple to put together, and yet so tasty!

Arugula Pesto Ingredients

I got the arugula pesto from Three Stone Hearth in Berkeley, a community supported kitchen devoted to cooking nutrient dense foods.

Refreshingly, the first ingredient listed, arugula, is actually the main ingredient. Next in order are Arbequina olive oil, parsley, crispy walnuts, parmesano reggiano, garlic, sea salt, lemon juice, lemon zest. I have some more products from Three Stone Hearth and also some other locally grown and produced goodies I'll be telling you about. Since I have been eating at home more often from my Capay Farms box, I've not had as many blog worthy meals. Yet I've been enhancing meals with some local condiments and foods which are interesting, such as this one. Stay tuned!

This one certainly seems blog worthy! You go, girl.

Thanks Zoomie. My meals have been delicious, and lots of stir fries with lots of green things. Although my blog has suffered, I've lost 25 lbs. :-)
