If you would like to make your own pesto, combine ½ cup chopped parsley, ¼ cup chopped roasted peanuts, ½ cup chopped arugula and 2 cloves garlic in food processor. Pulse a few times to mix ingredients, then, with the motor running, add ⅔ cup extra virgin olive oil in a slow, steady stream. Finish with ½ cup Parmesan cheese, zest of 2 lemons and salt, to taste.
Instead of charring vegetables in a skillet, you could cook vegetables on a grill heated to medium heat.
Feel free to substitute your favorite Creole seasoning blend for the Old Bay® seasoning.
