Spaghetti with arugula pesto

Arugula Pesto Spaghetti Recipe

We love pasta a lot, but you already know that! I had prepared an arugula pesto for this recipe. I really like all the pesto variations, here a nice green, slightly tart, but it’s arugula, the pine nuts will sweeten this spaghetti recipe with arugula pesto a little. If you don’t make your pasta, use small spaghetti, which cooks in 3 or 4 minutes, this way they won’t get too much pesto and you will have a nice balance. No meat tonight, the spaghetti with arugula pesto will be enough for our dinner.
