2 garlic cloves, unpeeled
4 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup pine nuts
3 cups packed arugula
1/4 cup pecorino romano cheese
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a small skillet. Add the garlic and cook over medium low heat until soft, 3-4 minutes. Remove the garlic and add the pine nuts. Toast the pine nuts in the skillet until lightly browned and fragrant. Peel and lightly chop the garlic. In the bowl of a food processor, add the garlic, pine nuts, arugula, cheese, and lemon juice. Pulse until a coarse paste forms. With the processor running, slowly add the olive oil until the pesto emulsifies. Taste and then season lightly with salt.
Makes 1/3 to 1/2 cup.
