Pasta Salad with Goat Cheese and Arugula

You can prep the components of this pasta salad in advance -- toss together just before serving. The spicy arugula, creamy goat cheese, and a touch of Dijon mustard give the dish plenty of flavor.

    One of the best pasta salad recipes ever! So simple to make! I change measurements for ease. I find it important to cook pasta al dente for this recipe to really shine! I use a box of pasta (16oz) and add 1 increment to everything else. 2 cans beans, 4oz goat cheese, 4T oil, 3T vinegar, 3Tsp mustard, 1/2Tsp salt, 1/4Tsp pepper, onion as indicated. I buy a 5oz box of arugula, much more convenient, and although it's not the amount called for it is plenty. Goat cheese and arugula lovers try this!

    Delicious! We switched out the goat cheese for blue cheese, and it was equally good. Enjoy!

    I wish they would include the nutrition info. with these recipes. Of course, it might make some of us not want to eat it. This sounds really good, though, and I do plan to try it.

    Arugula is also known as rugola, rucola, roquette, garden rocket, Mediterranean rocket, salad rocket, Roman rocket, or Italian cress (the rockets being a corruption of the French roquette).
