I also added fresh basil! Gave it really good flavor!

My husband and I thought this was fantastic! I made the full pound bag of pasta, added extra lemons and used asiago and pecorino on top. Delicious!
Quick. easy to prepare. Added slow pan fried mushrooms. My wife and i felt it was an excellent dinner that took very little time to prepare.

It was pretty pungent, although fairly tasty I thought. I did decrease the lemon. My boyfriend did not like this dish at all, he actually had to wash his mouth out! (oops) I think the combination of lemon, arugula and pecorino was too much for him. Giada de Laurentis has a similar recipe that uses just butter, pecorino, and pepper along with the arugula. I like that one a bit better.
The lemon and the arugula were just too strong. Maybe I didn't get my portions right. Ended up tossing in some leftover pesto to finish my plate.
This pasta got rave reviews from my family that was not looking forward to eating this new green leafy vegetable. My son was actually pushing the pasta to the side and going for the arugula. :-) It's so quick and easy too!
