Arugula grows well here. At least it did this spring....I"m finding myself with an abundance of this leafy green. But that's OK because we really like it. This week I made arugula pizza (see post from 9/23/10).
But wait, there's more!
I used some penne pasta, chicken apple sausage from Trader Joe's, and freshly grated Parmesan cheese. The sweetness of the sausage and the bite from the arugula...yum. The hot pasta wilted the freshly chopped arugula a bit. That is pictured below.
There's still more growing in my tiny garden, so we'll see what else I can come up with in the next couple weeks. It's a lot of arugula for the price of the seed package. The arugula pesto in the link above sounds good...and I have another pizza recipe calling for arugula. Really, just the leafy green with freshly squeezed lemon juice and salt and pepper is a favorite. I love it when simple food tastes so good.
It's that creative cooking time of year with garden produce and the CSA box, so stay tuned:)
