Pesto de Roquette a Recipe for Arugula Pesto
Many traditional recipes for pesto include basil leaves, this variation from Danielle Jouval at Domaine Saint Jacques calls for fresh roquette. Arugula (roquette) pesto is bright and slightly peppery, it is an excellent condiment for a sandwich, barbequed meat or drizzled on the top of a tomato salad.
Domaine Saint Jacques was at one time a working farmhouse in the Luberon. Danielle and Julien Jouval have updated the main house to include three large (3) self-catered suites with en-suite bathrooms and kitchenettes. Surrounding the house are nine (9) hectares of grapevines and the Luberon Valley waiting to be explored. These maison d’hôtes share a pool, and the hosts offer “cuisine sauvage” (natural, seasonal cooking) on demand.
