    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    This recipe was developed by PASTA PRESS and printed in their magazine. This is one favorite impromptu dish during the summer months when arugula is plentiful. As the arugula threads its way through the pasta, its peppery flavor compliments the sweetness of the pan-roasted garlic and fresh tomatoes.

      Heat olive oil in a large stir-fry pan over high heat.

    5. 5
      Immediately add tomatoes and chicken stock and heat to boil.
    6. 6
      Reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes.
    7. 7
      Add arugula leaves and toss until they begin to wilt, about 30 seconds.
    8. 8
      Immediately toss in the chicken and cook for 30 seconds.
    9. 9

      I used penne instead of linguine, less chicken (typical for me), and less garlic (unusual for me, but that's a lot of garlic! and I still thought the garlic flavor was strong), and it was YUMMY! I steamed and chopped the arugula before adding it, and I was surprised how this dish completely took down the bite of what was more-peppery-than-usual arugula.

      I'm odd woman out on this. I thought it was bland. If I had this to do over I'd add a lot of spices to the chicken. I love arugula but that's all I really tasted so I'd just rather have it as a salad. However, I'm glad I gave a new recipe a go. Thanks.

      I love this recipe and it was really simple to make. I also recommend using half chicken broth and half dry white wine. I took this recommendation from It also helps if you roughly chop up the arugula before adding it in the pan so that the arugula can be spread out more throughout the dish...yum lol. -Thank you for the recipe :D
