Mediterranean Arugula sauce

Still in the south of France, enjoying my mini vacation, the food, the weather, the sight of the sea…

But as one local said, everything becomes boring after a while, even the sun and the sea…I guess at some point we all get bored with where we live, and this is why we need vacations! I have been away for a month now, between visiting my family and joining my husband here in France. I think i’m ready to get back to Montreal now!

Today is Friday, and as promised we have another delicious Mediterranean recipe.

Arugula is used a lot in Mediterranean countries, mainly in salads. Arugula adds a powerful health boost to any menu; it is a detoxifying, cancer-fighting food.

Arugula also helps to lower cholesterol, balance blood sugar and reduce the risk of heart disease. It is rich in vitamin K and promotes bone health.

Here is a recipe of Arugula sauce for pasta:

-4tbs olive oil, 2-3 cups chopped arugula, 3 green onions chopped, 1/4 cup almonds or walnuts chopped, 10-12 cherry tomatoes cut in half, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese (freshly grated), 1 cup fresh cream.

-Heat oil on medium heat, add arugula, nuts and stir 2-3 min. Add tomatoes, cheese, then cream. Simmer gently until it thickens (like heavy cream). Season with salt and pepper. This is enough for 1 lb of cooked pasta.

Enjoy!
