TV Dinner: Arugula Walnut Pesto
WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - It’s a simple and very versatile recipe.
Chef Chris Manning shows us Arugula Walnut Pesto. It’s not only good as a pasta sauce, but he also mixes a quarter cup of it with a cup of mayonnaise and uses it as a condiment for sliders.
He also uses it to top off a grilled pork chop.
“This is great with anything,” he said. “You can go crazy.”
You can keep it in a sealed container in the fridge up to a week. Just drizzle some olive oil on top to keep it fresh.
