Yes, another pasta dish because I just can't help myself! I was cleaning out the fridge on Monday, because I always buy groceries on Tuesday. I know, predictable. I like to use up all my veggies before moving on to new stuff. It avoids waste and I feel like a better person. So, in there I found some asparagus that was on it's last legs as well as a bag of arugula that somehow got lost when I was looking for it a few days earlier. Still not sure how that happens. In any case, that was how we ended up with this pasta lunch. Enjoyed by all, so that's a success. New family dinner, check!
Note: I usually always leave a few herbs and a sprinkling of cheese to top off pasta dishes. Keep this in mind when adding the cheese and herbs to the pot. In this recipe, I kept a few tablespoons of cheese for the top along with a scattered handful of arugula leaves. For no reason other than prettiness!
Serve with a salad and some bread to make a complete meal
