CREAMY ANGEL HAIR PASTA WITH ARUGULA

an easy and beautiful main or side dish

I’ve been making this recipe for years. It’s fast, easy and always comes together beautifully. The best part is that you can make the sauce ahead of time. What more can I say. Boil some noodles, tear up some arugula, whisk a few ingredients and bam – dinner is served!
