Spaghetti with Arugula and Tomatoes recipe

This is a very quick and easy dish, refreshing and healthy.  Serves 4-6.

  • 3/4 to 1lb of spaghetti
  • 2 cups of coarsely chopped arugula (pat dry after washing)
  • 2 cups of diced tomatoes
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 3-4 Tb extra-virgin olive oil
  • Grated parmesan cheese

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add the spaghetti.  While spaghetti is cooking, chop the arugula and tomatoes and place them in a saute pan large enough to accommodate the pound of pasta, and pour the olive oil, salt and pepper, and cheese but do not turn on the heat.

A minute before the pasta is cooked, turn the fire on high below the arugula- tomatoes mix. Drain the pasta and then place the hot noodles over the arugula- tomatoes sauce, stir thoroughly to combine and the meal is ready.

Season to taste with salt and fresh ground pepper and serve immediately with extra grated parmesan cheese.
