Update: New niece has a name! Ruby Ann! Now on to the food!
I bought a big bag of arugula for a specific recipe and it did not happen. I made a small salad out of it, which is now a favorite of the gentleman caller, and never made the recipe. So I decided to make a semi pesto out of it, but not a real pesto because I had no nuts. I found this recipe for arugula salsa verde and knew it was the ticket. I made it and put it in a mason jar for another day. Then the next day, I had a night that needed a quick dinner. Arugula salsa and other pantry staples to the rescue!
I also made an impulse purchase of roasted marinated jarred veggies from Costco (can't find them online) and thought they would be nice with the arugula sauce. I bought some egg noodles for my Friday night with Katie Kakes for Steven Gurley Gravy and I knew I was not going to use them all, and I always have chicken laying around. A plan had come together!
Oh man this was good! The rest of the arugula salsa is in my freezer and I can't wait to try it again! This had such bright flavor, felt light for a pasta dish, and pleased both a man and a lady on cheat day. Try the sauce, make it your own or do this pasta dish. It is delish! Full recipe to follow.
