    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. :)

    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!

    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!

    This came together so quickly and easily which was just what I needed after a long day spent working outside. The arugula at the market looked quite sad so I subbed fresh spinach with a few basil leaves to try and mimic the perky flavor. Taking advantage of my freshly tended garden, I harvested fresh herbs - a tablespoon of each, more or less. The carnivorous _Mr. Susie_ was served Italian sausage and peppers to accompany his pasta but this was a meal unto itself for me. Thanks for sharing such a *great* recipe!
