Arugula Walnut Pesto Spaghetti

Super quick - you can make this recipe in about 15 minutes. A new take on pesto using the abundance of arugula on hand this season!


Serves 4


Arugula Walnut Pesto Spaghetti
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 2 cups basil
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • spaghetti
  • 1 cup tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced

  • Blend

    In your Vitamix, food processor, or blender, add the garlic clove, walnuts, nutritional yeast, arugula, basil, and 1 cup water and blend until smooth.

    Cook The Spaghetti

    You can use whatever pasta you'd like for this. I used a rice and quinoa spaghetti.


    While the spaghetti is cooking, sauté the mushrooms in about 1/4 cup of water.


    Drain the pasta and toss with the pesto sauce. Add the diced tomatoes and sautéed mushrooms and toss gently.
