Farfalle with Arugula Pesto Sauce
Farfalle with Arugula Pesto Sauce
(Farfalle con Pesto Arugula)
 
 
Ingredients:

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
3-4 cups fresh, washed arugula, or about 2 bunches
Salt and pepper, to taste 
Dash of red pepper flakes 
1/4 cup chicken broth 
1/4 cup grated Parmigiano cheese 
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts 
1/2 cups ripe cherry tomatoes, halved 
1 lb farfalle (bow tie) pasta 
Extra grated Parmigiano cheese for serving if desired 

Directions:
 
In a food processor, combine the garlic, arugula, half the pine nuts and the olive oil and process until finely chopped. 
 
Add the grated Parmigiano cheese, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes if desired. Pulse.
 
Adding just a few tablespoons at a time drizzle in the chicken broth until the sauce is thick and emulsified. You shouldn't need too much of the broth. 

Cook the pasta until it is 'al dente'. Drain, reserving a small amount of the pasta water in a cup.
 
In the pasta pot, combine the hot pasta, arugula sauce, the cherry tomatoes and the remaining pine nuts. 
 
Cook briefly over medium heat until well mixed, adding just a little of the reserved pasta water if it seems dry. 
 
Serve hot, topped with shaved or grated parmesan cheese if desired. 

That's it!
