In this video we make Cajun shrimp with arugula pesto on penne. I am a huge fan of arugula and this pesto is the best. The sunflower seeds add an amazing flavor and texture to the dish. If you only make one of my recipes this is the one to make! You can make it vegetarian by dropping the shrimp; this is how my wife eats it. This is also a great way to use up the bitter arugula leaves that you let get to big in your garden. Thanks for watching!

  1. Thanks August, Since your reply I’ve seen this everywhere. Rocket I know. Thanks for the other info. Definitely helps with international recipes.

  2. Thanks, Joanne! I am arugula’s #1 fan. I try to work it into everything. Plus, it’s the only green thing my 3 year old will eat. We are growing some in the laundry room under lights. 🙂 We actually grew the arugula in the video together.
