Jon
Recipe by
| Servings: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch (about 4 ounces) arugula, stems trimmed, washed
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1½ teaspoons coarse salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 assorted Italian pork sausages, both hot and sweet varieties (about 1 pound)

Instructions

  1. Make the pesto: Place the arugula and garlic in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped, scraping down sides if necessary. Add cheese, salt, pepper, and olive oil, and puree until smooth and well combined.
  2. Heat grill to medium-high heat. Prick sausages with fork to allow excess fat to drip. Grill until cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Serve pesto over the grilled sausages.

Comment: Save any extra pesto to use on other grilled meats or fish. It will last up to one week in the refrigerator.
