This was awful. And quite expensive to make! It really lacked flavor (hubby said it was "bitter"), which was odd to me since the arugula had a wonderful flavor before adding. I tried to follow the recipe exactly (I used broth for the wine since I didn't want to open a new bottle for just 1/3 cup...and being a weeknight, wouldn't have drank the rest of the bottle), but needed to add more broth as the rice was crunchy and the liquid had run out. Agree that it needs more salt and maybe more nuts? Some red chile flakes? A store-bought package of rice pilaf would have been better...and much cheaper!
