Instructions
  1. Process the arugula, parsley, garlic, Parmesan and peas in a food processor until they form a smooth paste, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl twice. Add the lemon juice, salt and olive oil and process, scraping down as needed, to make a smooth creamy pesto. Place the pesto in a bowl, and stir in the lemon zest.
  2. Cook the pasta according to package directions; drain and toss with the pesto. Serve with additional Parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
Recipe Notes

Serving suggestion: Spread this light, fresh pesto on a prepared pizza crust and top with goat cheese before baking or broiling, and cut in small triangles for a seasonal appetizer. Add halved cherry tomatoes and snips of fresh herbs or garlic scapes if you like.
