Liz Neumark of The Sylvia Center at Katchkie Farm in upstate New York teaches children how to grow, harvest and prepare healthy, natural, local food. Sylvia’s Table, their just-released cookbook, is full of the Center’s greatest hits. This variation on pesto incorporates peppery arugula and earthy, herbal sage for a fresh, simple sauce you’ll slather on more than just pasta.

The flavors here are pretty assertive, but this pesto is great on boiled small whole potatoes or tossed with whole-wheat pasta. Use it as a sauce with pork, grilled steaks or seafood.
