Fresh Pasta with Arugula Pesto, Fingerling Potatoes

& Green Beans

Fresh Pasta with Arugula Pesto, Fingerling Potatoes  & Green Beans

The word pesto comes from the Italian word “pestare” which means to crush or pound, since pesto is traditionally made in a mortar and pestle. Here the pesto is made with arugula instead of the usual basil in this take on a dish called “Trenette al Pesto” from Italy’s northwest region of Liguria.
