  • 8 oz linguine uncooked
  • 1 recipe Arugula Pesto
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped toasted pecans
  • 1/2 cup + pasta water


  • Cook linguine as per package directions. Reserve about 1/2 cup of the pasta water before draining.
  • Toss the hot pasta with the entire amount of the arugula pesto. Add only enough of the reserved pasta water so that the mixture is not dry–the amount you add will vary as to what consistency pleases your taste.
  • Top with the chopped pecans.
