This take on pesto from our sister business, The Pasta Shop, features peppery arugula with fresh parsley, lemon juice, capers and garlic. It's bold. It's zesty. It's great on everything. Stir the sauce into warm cooked pasta, toss with roasted potatoes or grilled summer squash, serve as a side for fish or slather on a roast beef sandwich.
