Arugula Pesto sauce

A different Pesto sauce

Just perfect for pasta, amazing on bruschetta..

Anew flavor for a queen sauce. Arugula is a little bitter and spicy so you have to be careful not to put in too much garlic. But there is no fixed rule, you taste it as you go along so you can add what is missing according to your taste.
