Creamy Arugula Walnut Pesto with Ricotta - Texas Hill Country Olive Co.

Across the board, pestos are delicious. In our minds, this is a fact. But we firmly believe this creamy ricotta arugula walnut pesto is the best of the best. The texture is unreal, and we could eat this stuff by the spoon-full.

And our Sola Stella Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the perfect touch. This delicate buttery oil perfectly compliments the ricotta pesto, and we want to add this sauce to everything we make!
