If you want to store the baby arugula pistachio sauce you can put it in small sealable containers making sure the olive oil tops the pesto sauce, this will ensure the freshness of the pesto and preserve its flavor and aroma. then you can put containers in the freezer till you want to use them.
When you go to use the pesto, take out of freezer and let thaw at room temperature.
