Weekly Organic Meal: Pasta with Arugula

I got a batch of arugula with my weekly organic fruit and vegetable delivery, and honestly I didn't know WHAT to do with it! I've never cooked with arugula. So a quick text to one of the 4 chefs in my family, and the easiest thing he suggested was sautee it and throw it on some pasta. Pasta sounded good for lunch (hello, half Italian, pasta Always sound good) So I did. AND the result was pretty damn good!!

organic pasta of your choice
organic butter
organic arugula
organic cherry and grape tomatoes (or one or the other, I had both so I used both)
organic shredded parmesan cheese 
 2 small garlic cloves chopped up

While your pasta is boiling, saute your arugula ( I used two handfuls, just for me) with some virgin olive oil and garlic. 

When it's wilted looking (it only took about 3 minutes) take it off

When pasta was done boiling I drained the water, then added it back into the pan with a large table spoon of butter and parmesan cheese. I stirred it all in and let the cheese melt together and added some pepper.

Take the pasta off eat- and throw in your garlic, arugula, and chopped up tomatoes. 

Throw some parmesan cheese on top and you are DONE

Super quick, easy and delicious. It took about 15 minutes total!
