If I had to choose one thing to eat for the rest of my life, it would be spaghetti. I LOVE spaghetti. In fact, I've made it a point to eat it in every single country I've ever visited. For the record, Mexico and the Czech Republic have had my faves thus far. Since I'm such a nut over this food, I'm always looking for different ways to serve it up and I think I may have just found my newest obsession: Spaghetti with Arugula and Capers. Delish!
So easy and so very fast. Here ya go.
1/2 - 3/4 cup chopped arugula
1-2 teaspoons of capers (depending on your liking for them)
1-2 teaspoons of garlic (I go for the latter)
Halved cherry tomatoes (the original recipe called for plum tomatoes but I just used what I had on hand)
Red pepper flakes (I was out but used two packages of the ones that come with Mazzios' pizza!)
Kalamata Olives (I omitted this ingredient - olives aren't my thang)
Salt & Pepper
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
Mix all of those goodies together and let it sit in the fridge for a half hour or so. Meanwhile, cook up some spaghetti and get your chompers ready! After the sauce has set for a bit, pile it all together, top with some fresh parmesan and chow down!
If you'd like the mixture warmed, just nuke it in the microwave for 30 seconds or so. I had our leftovers for lunch today reheated and it was sooooooooo good. It's a very fresh combination, healthy and super easy!
