Fennel and Arugula Pesto Salad
In a food processor blend 2 cloves garlic, 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and 2 cups fresh chopped Arugula. Slowly add 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 400°. Toss finely chopped Zefa Fino fennel bulb, broccoli florets, sweet red and yellow peppers with olive oil to coat. Roast in hot oven until tender, about 1 hour, stirring several times. Meanwhile, cook pasta until just tender, drain. Toss pasta with Arugula pesto and roasted vegetables.
