Cooking Light, May 2003. This dish is such comfort food! Fettucine, shrimp, onions and arugula, marry together to make such a nice dish! The fresh tomatoes give it such a great taste and with the peppery flavor of the arugula, it is wonderful! Update: 09/10/2007 ... Chef Wineaux reworked the recipe and she suggested using 3/4 lb of boneless & skinless chicken (cut up the size of shrimp)and sprinkled it with 1 teaspoon of curry powder (you can always use more) and 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes (they like it with a little zip).

Delicious, versatile, and easy. I added sliced mushrooms (because I had some leftover), omitted the half-and-half (calories) and subbed spinach for the arugula (personal taste). Still delicious. When I make it again (and I will) I'll add a bit of garlic and a squeeze of lemon. Thanks for sharing.

My husband said twice - he'd eat this type of meal 3 times a week! Yum Yay!!! I mostly followed the recipe - using a can of fire roasted tomatoes (I had no fresh) I used 4 large garlic cloves, a handful of fresh basil - chiffonade mixed with the arugula and then added a dash of lemon to the dish at the end. Other than those changes, I followed the recipe - and will be keeping this on file and making it again! Yum! A nice fresh, mostly healthy dinner for a summer night!

Wow! I'd give this recipe more than 5 stars! This is now one of my favorite recipes on Zaar. Definitely a more "sophisticated" comfort food ;-) I've even had the leftovers for breakfast the next Thanks so much for a great recipe.
