Servings: 8   |    Prep: 35 mins   |    Cook: 20 mins

Ingredients

Arugula Presto
5 oz fresh arugula
4 oz package fresh basil, stems removed
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1/2 cup pecans
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 whole garlic cloves
1 1/3 cup DaVinci Olive Oil
3/4 teaspoon salt

Grilled Zucchini and Arugula Orzo
1 small red onion
3 zucchini cut into spears
16oz pkg. DaVinci Orzo
1 cup prepared Arugula Pesto

Directions

1. In a blender place the arugula, basil, olive oil, garlic, lemon and salt. Process until smooth and not stringy.

2. Next add in the parmesan and pecans. Pulse until you achieve the desired consistency. Don’t over-blend, causing the cheese to melt from the heat of the blades.

3. In a large pot, cook the orzo pasta until al dente. Strain off the water and toss with 1 cup of the pesto while still warm.

4. Cut the Onions into rings and zucchini into spears. Place on a grill to cook. Flip halfway through cooking.
