Yield: Yields 1-1/4 cups
Rich sheep’s milk cheese pairs well with roasted almonds. In this Spanish twist, the two come together with peppery arugula and lemon zest to make a bright tasting pesto that is perfect for linguine with shrimp, baked fish, or roasted cherry tomatoes and olives tossed with penne. For breakfast, try spreading this pesto on toast and topping it with a soft-boiled egg.
Marcona almonds are available at many grocery and specialty food stores. If you can’t find them, substitute toasted almonds, preferably skinless.Recipe reprinted with permission from DI BRUNO BROS. HOUSE OF CHEESE © 2013 by Tenaya Darlington, Running Press, a member of the Perseus Books Group.
