      This made for a nice quick mid week dinner. Scaled the recipe back to serve 2 people. I used one can tomatoes along with two fresh tomatoes. Delicious. :)

      Fantastic! Combination of peppery arugula and pecorino romano in this quick and healthy dinner gives the dish quite a bite. Wouldn't suggest subbing either of these ingredients, they really make the recipe. Used 2 cans petite diced tomatoes and a 5 oz. package of baby arugula. Will make this again, hopefully with fresh tomatoes next time. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      Quite a good recipe! It's missing something, but I'm not sure what. Next time I'll try adding some bacon or crumbled sausage. Thanks for sharing!
