  1. Combine fresh basil, peppery arugula, tangy lemon juice, refreshing water, and luscious olive oil in a blender. Blend the ingredients together for 5-10 seconds until well combined.
  2. To enhance the flavor, add garlic, a pinch of salt, a dash of pepper, and nutritious almond meal to the blender. Blend the mixture until everything is fully incorporated and the pesto sauce has a smooth consistency.
  3. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook the spaghetti according to the instructions on the packaging.
  4. While draining the cooked pasta, make sure to save about a third to one full cup (80 to 235 ml) of the starchy pasta water.
  5. Once the pasta is well-drained, return it to the pot and add the prepared pesto sauce. Stir well, gradually adding the reserved pasta water until the sauce reaches your desired consistency.
  6. Serve and savor the delightful flavors of this homemade pesto spaghetti! Enjoy!
