Make-Ahead Spaghetti With Arugula Jalapeño Pesto and Zucchini

[Photograph: Suzanne Lehrer]

Notes: To add and maintain more heat, keep the seeds in the jalapeño. Make sure to drain the pesto well, otherwise you'll end up with some separated oil the next day. You can keep the oil in an airtight container and mix it into vinaigrettes for a subtle kick.

Swipe some of this pesto on shrimp, beef, chicken or tacos. It goes well with just about everything.
