A different twist on pesto. Basil sometimes isn't what you want

I am on an arugula kick right now and had an outdoor container of parsley to clean up plus spinach is always on hand in the fridge. This pesto rocks .... the arugula adds that nice peppery bite...ooh la la!! Definite repeat for this household each harvest year
