Easy Savory and Spicy Pesto.
My Easy Savory and Spicy Pesto is made with both organic arugula and organic radish greens for a super spicy flavor! I use the traditional pine nuts, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper to round out the spiciness of the greens. This pesto recipe makes more than a full quart of nutritious and delicious sauce to top off pasta, blend into risotto, make into dips or to put into yummy casseroles as a flavor enhancer! My Easy Savory and Spicy Pesto is a versatile topping or sauce: enjoy using it an a variety of dishes, the possibilities are endless!
