Delicious & Super Easy pasta with arugula and gorgonzola

This is fast becoming my favorite dinner meal to prepare. It only takes about 15 minutes and is fresh. Of course the ingredients can be a bit pricey, but 1 block of Gorgonzola lasts me close to 4 weeks.

arugula pasta ready to serve

What you’ll need:

Pasta, 1 serving, I like to use bow tie, penne or other short pastas, feel free to try a long pasta if you prefer it

1 handful arugula

A good chunk of Gorgonzola cheese, to taste, I’d say about a Tablespoon

A glug or 2 of Olive Oil

6 cherry or grape tomatoes sliced in half

1 or 2 cloves of garlic crushed and peeled but not chopped, you may chop in half or thirds if you like

Salt and pepper to taste

How to make it:

Put a pot of water on to boil, add salt (sometimes I don’t add salt, but that is only when I am feeling lazy or forget)

When the water is boiling add pasta and garlic crushed and peeled, but not chopped (the garlic will sweeten and soften, I like to leave it in, but you can remove if you like)

When the pasta is cooked, about 15 minutes depending on the pasta, drain and return to pot

Toss in the arugula, olive oil, tomatoes, salt and pepper

Serve hot!
