  • Summary

    This twist on classic pesto swaps arugula for basil, making a peppery sauce that goes nicely with toasted pine nuts and sun-dried tomatoes. For something extra, grate a little pecorino or Parmesan cheese on top before serving. What to buy: Sun-dried tomatoes come packed dry or in oil and can be found in most grocery stores. Here we use tomatoes packed in oil because they give more flavor than their dry counterparts (which need to be reconstituted before using).

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound pasta, such as orecchiette, gemelli, or conchiglie
    • 10 ounces arugula, washed and tough stems removed
    • 5 medium garlic cloves, peeled
    • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
    • 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
    • 2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained and thinly sliced
