- pasta of choice (I used penne piccole rigate) @dececco
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- ¼ cup of sun-dried tomatoes
- broccolini microgreens @ortalizafarms
- 3 tbsp olive oil @getkristinas
- ½ tsp of salt
- ¼ tsp fresh ground black pepper
- 2 tsp red pepper flakes optional
- 3 tbsp Parmigiano cheese + more for serving
- Reserve ¼ cup of pasta water
Bring salted water to a boil in a pot.
Cook pasta to al dente according to package instructions.
Before draining reserve ¼ a cup of the pasta water and place to the side.
While pasta is cooking, in a skillet over medium heat add 3 tbsp of olive oil.
Add minced garlic and cook until fragrant about 1 minute.
Add sun dried tomatoes, and salt pepper. Cook for 3-5 minutes until it begins to soften.
Add arugula and add 2 tbsp more olive oil to help arugula wilt.
Once arugula has wilted add pasta.
Add parmigiano cheese to the pasta.
Add a few tablespoons of the pasta water to help thin the cheese for it to coat the pasta.
Top with a handful of broccolini microgreens.
Enjoy this dish with a glass of rosé Brilliante wine from @vivace.estate.winery
