Garlicky Arugula Pasta

4 serving(s)


12 ounces dried linguine

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

3 tablespoons fish sauce

1 large bunch baby arugula (about 5 ounces)



1. In a large pot of lightly salted boiling water, cook the pasta according to box directions until one minute short of al dente. Drain thoroughly, reserving 1/4 cup pasta water for later use. Wipe out pot and set back on stove at medium heat.

2. Heat olive oil until fragrant, about 1 minute, then add garlic slices and red pepper flakes. Saute for 30 seconds, until garlic is slightly cooked but still pungent.

3. Add drained pasta, pasta water, fish sauce, and arugula; remove from heat and toss until greens are just incorporated and arugula is slightly wilted. Serve immediately.
