Peppery arugula and toasted pine nuts add grown-up flavors to a kid-friendly pasta dish. The bowties (farfalle) are always popular with kids, but you could use other short pasta shapes in this recipe, such as fusilli, orecchiette, or penne.

Cook's Notes

Before using, be sure to wash the arugula well in several changes of cold water to remove all the grit, then pat dry with paper towels.

    Delicious, the whole family loves it (minus the arugula and pine nuts for the kids) and I usually add some shredded chicken for a complete meal. So easy too.

    For little ones I would change the Arugula to baby spinach leaves and omit the pinenuts.

    Love the idea but hate the cream I often substitute evaporated milk and it works great without the fat!

    A substitute for heavy cream would be great...there are too many fat ingredients in these recipes....substitutes for the heavy fats would be welcomed.
