Pesto Pasta with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

Pair with 2019 Stream of Consciousness


2 garlic cloves, sliced
2 tablespoons pine nuts
4 ounces arugula, stemmed, washed and dried
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 to 1/2 club extra virgin olive oil
1/3 to 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano
20 cherry tomatoes, halved
8 oz. long pasta noodle of your choice

For the Pesto

Using either a mortar and pestle or food processor, mash the garlic cloves until they start to form a paste. Add the pine nuts and combine with garlic until the nuts are finely ground. Add the salt and arugula in handfuls that fit into the mortar, gently macerating them until the oils release. Once all the arugula has been broken down, slowly drizzle in the olive oil until the pesto has a fluid consistency. Stir in the cheese. 

For the Tomatoes

Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Gently toss the halved cherry tomatoes in extra virgin olive oil, coarse sea salt, and freshly ground pepper. Roast the tomatoes, tossing once, for 20 - 25 minutes, until the tomatoes are blistered and beginning to burst.

Bring a salted pot of water to boiling temperature and cook the pasta per the pasta's instructions. 

Toss all to combine, topping with freshly grated parmesan.

Credit: Valerie Von Burg, founder of Anarchist Wine Co. & Foundry Wines

Pair with 2018 Foundry Chardonnay, Courtney's Vineyard

Serves 10


1 pound sweet potato, steamed and sliced
2 shallots, minced
1 teaspoon garlic, chopped
1/2 pound shitake mushrooms, stems removed and caps sliced
1/2 pound portobello mushrooms, stems removed and caps sliced thin
2 tablespoons basil, chopped
1 box puff pastry
4 oz. Gruyere, grated
4 tablespoons olive oil
salt & pepper to taste

Egg wash
1 egg
1/4 cup water


Pre-heat oven to 350°

Steam the potato until tender but not falling apart, let cool, then peel and slice thin and set aside. In a sauté pan add the olive oil and heat to medium, then add the mushrooms, garlic, shallots and basil. Sauté until tender, then add the sliced potato and toss a few times trying not to break the slices up. Season with salt and pepper to taste, let cool, and set aside.

Take the puff pastry and roll it to half its original thickness. Cut 5-inch circles or squares. Fill with the mixture and top with a little cheese, leaving space around the edges. Brush edges with egg wash, fold the pastry and seal the edges with a fork. Brush the surface of the empanadas with egg wash and place on an oiled baking sheet.

Bake at 350° until golden brown. Enjoy with a beautiful glass of Foundry 2018 Chardonnay, Courtney’s Vineyard!
