Nancy Moe


1 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes (one 8 1/2 ounce jar), drained,
rinsed, patted dry, and shopped very coarse
6 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup walnuts, toasted in small dry skillet over medium heat until
fragrant, about 6 minutes
1 small clove of garlic, minced or pressed through garlic press
3/4 ounce grated Parmesan cheese (1/2 cup)
salt and pepper
1 pound campanelli or farfelle pasta
1 medium bunch arugula ( about 10 oz), washed, dried, and
cut into 1-inch lengths (about 6 cups)
3 ounces goat cheese

In food processor, pulse sun-dried tomatoes, oil, walnuts,
garlic, Parmesan, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/8 tsp pepper until
smooth, about fifteen 2 second pulses, scraping down bowl
as needed. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.

Bring 4 quarts water to rolling boil, covered, in stockpot.
Stir in pasta and 1 Tbsp salt; cook until al dente. Drain,
reserving 3/4 cup cooking water, and return pasta to
stockpot; immediately stir in arugula until wilted. Stir
pasta-cooking water into pesto; stir pesto into pasta.
Serve immediately, dotting individual bowls with 1/2 inch
pieces of goat cheese.
