Arugula and Walnut Pesto
I noticed the organic arugula salad starting to go south in my fridge and instead of wasting it I decided to try making pesto with it. I washed and went through it and threw out the bad leaves. It's funny how quickly the pre-washed salads go rotten. I also always still wash them as I believe they have been sprayed with something to preserve them. I can't remember where I got that information so I just do it. I also used this pesto in another lasagna as a layer. It also tasted really great at my girlfriends house moping it up with Thermomix made foccacia bread. I will post that recipe at a later date. Anyway this takes less then a minute to make this.

Blend speed9/ 7 seconds and scrape down.
150 g walnuts
