Ingredients

Directions

  • Whisk all the ingredients together vigorously in a mixing bowl while slowly adding the olive oil. Adjust to taste. Set aside in a container.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add salt and the pasta. Cook until very al dente.
  • Drain the pasta and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking and to wash away some of the starches. (note: only rinse your pasta if it is intended for a cold pasta salad dish). Allow the pasta to cool.
  • Toss the cold pasta, tomatoes, onion, and arugula with the pesto dressing. Mix to coat evenly.
  • Serve cold.
