Simple Simon

Rotini, linguini, spaghetti its your choice when you toss it with a little olive oil and some arugula then gobs of grated parmigiano reggiano. The nuttiness of the arugula makes this simple lunch have that little bit of extra "umami". You seriously get a full and satisfying flavor from three ingredients -

four if you count the pasta-arugula, olive oil cheese. Try it with basil or water cress but to me only the arugula hits the mark spot on. I also had a little snack of sliced pear and brie

with some toasted buttered slices of scone and some Yogi Tea.

arugula? Is that green stuff? It being green is probably why if never bought it, or even heard of it. What's it taste like?

I just bought yogi tea too, my favorite flavor is chai and this yogi one is very good.

try the pasta blt next time, the arugula, little grape tomatos and bacon- quite a nice combo and the kids even likes it.
