Tasty. I made ours alcohol & intoxicant free using apple cider in place of the alcohol and allspice in place of the nutmeg. I used unrefined extra virgin olive oil but did turn the heat down, vindalia onion in place of the red onion, sea salt, to taste, a little cayenne pepper powder in place of the chili pepper flakes, dried rosemary but would chose a different herb/herbs next time per preference, baby arugula, no cheese to be dairy free. DD (toddler) and I ate this as a snack enjoying the liquid left at the bottom as well, sopped up on rice cakes! (We are gluten free) Made for Veggie Swap 38 ~ September ~

This was a great recipe! I dislike arugula raw and a bag of it came in my local organic box. My hubby thought the dish was too salty so next time I will leave the salt out. I used the white wine and topped with mozzarella.

Fantastic. Made just as the recipe called for and even my three and one year old kiddos loved it.

Winner. Will make often. Great to use up arugula and mushrooms. Had no vermouth or wine, so used a splash of white vinegar and it worked fine. Added dried thyme and good amount of nutmeg. Delicious!

My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. I used 1/2 spinach (had some I needed to use) and 1/2 arugula, which probably created a less bitter taste. My husband loves nutmeg (so i was generous with the addition) and we both thought the dish was great! Thanks ~Rita~ for the nice recipe!

Very different and glad I tried it. I used white wine, fresh parsley/oregano, and then added a bunch of greek seasoning at the end. Thanks for a different way to use up the bag of Arugula!

I love arugula but never thought of sauteeing them. I've made this almost every week, it's my new favorite way to eat veggies. Thanks so much Rita :)

Loved it! I had some arugula and a bunch of fresh herbs... and this is what I decided to do with them. Because my herbs were fresh, I added them in the very end. I really enjoyed this dish. Topped with a pit of parm cheese = fantastic. *Note: Depending on how heave the main dish was, I would go heavier or lighter on the nutmeg to match. (Ex: Afredo = Heavier, Light tomato = softer on the nutmeg)

I'm not a vegetarian and this was still awesome. there's a lot of juices left over after sauteeing the rocket. I just left it in the bowl. This is my first experience with arugula and it seems to me like an Italian version of greens.
