I made a small batch of these (but wish I hadn't ;) ) and what a delicious recipe! Luckily I was able to use arugula and fingerlings both from our CSA box and a few "One Bite" potatoes in blue, red and yellow. I've made many variations of pesto but this one with arugula was different and we LOVED it! Plus-arugula is my favorite green which made it even better! I also do very little oven cooking this time of year but it was well worth it in my opinion. Prepared and reviewed for the FYC tag game.
