Rocket Chicken Pesto

Loving that green.  Makes me want to wear it out.
Arugula is inticing.  It's between salad and herb, and tonight, it replaced fresh basil in my pesto.  I suppose this is a poor people pesto.  Rocket (arugula) is much cheaper than basil (especially this time of year) and toasted butternut squash seeds are waaay cheaper than pine nuts.
Add some chicken, a handful of sundried tomatoes and some cauliflower (to trick the enemy) and you have yourself a bright green sexy pasta meal.

1 bunch arugula (about 2-3 handfuls)
5 cloves peeled garlic
4 handfuls parmesan
handful pinenuts or other seeds
1/4 cup (I admit I didn't measure) EVOO
Blend it
