    Arugula and Tarragon Pesto Sauce (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    I’ve actually found that when it comes to pesto sauces, I sometimes stray a bit from a traditional basil-based sauce. There are so many possible combinations of fresh herbs, it’s easy to try a new one each time.

    This particular recipe is spicy, peppery and versatile. It can be used to top meats, vegetables, rice or quinoa along with any good gluten-free pasta. I deliberately omit the pine nuts found in most pesto sauces, because I think the herbs stand on their own better than just basil, but feel free to include them. You might try thinning it out with a little more olive oil to create a robust dressing for salads.

    Ingredients:
    3 cups packed arugula
    ½ cup flat-leaf parsley
    2 tablespoons fresh tarragon
    2 cloves garlic
    ¾ cup olive oil
    ½ teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon pepper
    ½ cup freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese (or Parmesan)

    Directions:
    In a food processor, blend the arugula, parsley, tarragon and garlic until finely chopped.

    With the machine running, slowly add the oil, processing until incorporated and well-blended. Stop to scrape down the sides of the bowl if necessary.

    Spoon pesto into a medium bowl and stir in cheese, salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate until serving, up to 2 days.

    It's so hard having intolerance to gluten, and dairy especially whenit comes to Italian food. I haven't had eggplant Parmesan since goinggluten-free, but I finally found a  gluten-free, dairy freeeggplant Parmesan I can actually eat! The following recipe isgluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, meat-free, and sugar-free, with theoption for nut-free. However, it is not soy-free as I don't tend to have problems with soy, especially if it is organic, non-GMO, and gluten-free, tofu which is hard to find but very worth it.

    Very similar to fettuccine, tagliatelle is one of my favorite kinds of pasta. I especially like Schär brand gluten-free tagliatelle. When I was in Italy a while back, I enjoyed a tasty plate of gluten-free pasta in a porcini mushroom cream sauce. The dish was a home run, and when I got back to the States, I opened my cupboard and tried to duplicate the rich, flavorful sauce that had won my heart in Italy.
    After a few experiments, I settled on this recipe, which yields a creamy, delicious sauce and goes very well with the Schär tagliatelle I had on hand. The sauce incorporates parmesan cheese and will appeal to most macaroni and cheese lovers at your t...
