Arugula, an herb? Who knew? (Not me.)

I love easy pasta dishes. I don't like arugula, so I would substitute baby spinach.


This sounds AND looks great Sher! And i love the speed of it all!


Sher, I totally agree with you about the tuna!!!


Fabulous and fast!!! Photo is plenty good communication especially with your words.


Looks like a great, quick pasta supper, and who doesn't love recipes like that??? Tuna and arugula is a nice combination.


This sounds just wonderful. It's very similar to one of my favorite dishes, a spagetti with arugula and Italian Sausage where you just cook the sausage, add some garlic and olive oil, pour it over the arugula and mix in the cooked spagetti. Yum. What could be better. I'll look for that tuna with olive oil. I haven't tried it but I remember someone (S'kat I think) raving about how much better it was. Have to admit, I love canned tuna. But not as much as arugula.


BTW, this just gave me an idea to feature pasta for SB Recipes of the week. With Dreamfields, this is perfectly South Beach friendly.


Looks tasty, until I read your recipe properly I wondered what argula was now I know sounds like it would give a nice peppery tasty to it. I wonder if I could use soba noodles instead as I can only eat gluten free you have given me 'food for thought' pardon the pun. I love your blog and especially like your roasted pork tenderloin one which I am going to try. Have also ordered the book!
please see comment on the roasted pork recipe as to how I found your blog.

Healthy and quick, exactly what I need these days! And there's nothing wrong with the pic, yours always turn out just fine.


hahah i knoe exactly what your talking about. i've been trying to enforce the eat first photograph later rule but then you always run the risk of nothing being left to take pictures of... which is exactly what would happen to me if i had this delicious pasts in front of me!


Nice! Sounds like a delicious combination. I love fast, tasty pasta recipes. It's good to have a nice variety in your repertoire so you can always pull a fast meal out of your sleave.


Oh Yum! What a great combination. I could eat arugula every day and not get tired of it!


Sher, this recipe is saved into my must-do list! Yummy!


What else can I say???? Except YUM! Your step-by-step pics make this dish all the more drool-inducing :)


What a nice and easy quick dish!! I love arugula on pizza, but never tried it this way. Thanks for the inspiration.
And as to photograpy, you´re right. My daughter always is kidding me when I take fotos at the table. :))


Arugula and linguine is also good with potatoes and bacon, another recipe that appeared in the SF Chronicle, but about 13 years ago, and a staple at my house ever since!

1 pound dried linguine
12 ounces Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, cut into 1/2 inch dice
2 T extra virgin olive oil
3 ounces pancetta, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes,
salt to taste
1/2 pound young arugula

INSTRUCTIONS: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and potatoes and cook until pasta is al dente. While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil and pancetta in a skillet over moderate heat until the pancetta softens, about 2 minutes; do not allow it to crisp. Add the garlic and hot pepper flakes and cook 1 minute to release garlic fragrance. Add a large pinch of salt. Keep warm. Put the arugula in a large serving bowl. Drain the pasta and potatoes, reserving about 1 cup of the cooking water. Add the pasta and potatoes to the arugula. Add the mixture in the skillet. Toss well, adding as much of the reserved cooking water as needed to moisten the pasta. The arugula will wilt in the heat of the sauce.

Serves 6.


I love seeing the same dishes as prepared by different people!
Here's when we made this:


Have been serving this for years, to great reception without exception, but with a bit of lemon juice thrown in at the end, just before serving. Plays nicely with the pique of the pepper flakes!
