Arugula Asiago Pesto and More Must-Tries

It's that time again. I find a must-have-immediately recipe on How Sweet It Is, make it, post pictures, and tell you how good it is while wondering why anyone in their right mind wouldn't be following her yet. Oh wait, I know- because just about every post she does is must-have-immediately which isn't always great on the waistline... but just about always good on the taste buds.

So let's mix it up today. Here are some pictures of the Arugula Asiago Pesto from How Sweet (that I actually made weeks ago, several times within a few days, and have just forgotten to post about) along with the link to that and a few other recipes I'm dying to try. The Arugula Asiago Pesto itself is SO easy to make. SOOOOO easy. I love pesto but was always under the impression it was more difficult to make. This is the fastest thing to throw together on pasta, and the flavor combination and the way the Asiago melts when combined with the warm pasta... Yum!

I just sauteed bite-sized chicken pieces tossed in a mixture of flour, salt, pepper, and spices of your choice (Rosemary, Oregano, Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, anything Italian- all good options. Hell, use them all at once!) in some olive oil and minced garlic until cooked through and then tossed them on top of the pasta. Super easy way to cook chicken- I do this to add to more meals than you could even imagine.
