Arugula has a fresh, peppery flavor that pairs well with the sweet tomatoes.


  • 1 ½ pounds frozen beef tortellini (from two 1-pound bags)

  • ½ cup sun-dried tomatoes, thinly sliced

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 2 bunches arugula (12 ounces total), washed well and torn into large pieces

  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. Cook pasta and tomatoes in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente, according to package instructions. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water. Drain pasta mixture, and return to pot.

  2. Add arugula and butter to pasta. Toss, adding reserved pasta water a little at a time to create a thin sauce that coats tortellini (you may not need all the water). Season with salt and pepper; toss to combine. Serve.
