  • 1 bunch arugula (about 4 ounces), stems trimmed, washed
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 assorted Italian pork sausages (about 1 pound), both hot and sweet varieties


  1. Make the pesto: Place the arugula and garlic in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped, scraping down sides if necessary. Add cheese, salt, pepper, and olive oil, and puree until smooth and well combined.

  2. Heat grill to medium-high heat. Prick sausages with fork to allow excess fat to drip. Grill until cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Serve pesto over the grilled sausages.
