This modified classic pesto recipe substitutes arugula for basil, resulting in a sauce that’s less sweet and has a little bite. Since arugula is a cool weather crop and basil grows in the heat of summer, this recipe is best used in spring and fall to make the most of seasonal produce. Serve arugula pesto on pasta, poultry, fish or bread – it’s delicious on damn near anything.
