a delicious spring pesto

i made the most delicious pesto last night.
with left over pasta and no desire for red sauce, i found what i could and threw it together.

a large handful of arugula scavenged from the yard
six or so garlic scapes
a small bundle of chives
a small chunk of parsley
handful of pine nuts
extra virgin olive oil.

threw everything into the food processor and pulsed until they were chopped up a fair amount. what came out was a brilliant green, spicy pesto that packed a lot of flavor in a little scoop. (turns out its delicious in scrambled eggs as well.)

new favorite recipe of the season.
