4 servings (serving size: 1 1/2 cups pasta and 2 tablespoons cheese)

As they mature in the summer's heat, arugula leaves get hot and spicy as well as plentiful and cheap. Even when cooked, they have an assertive personality, a good match for the whole-wheat spaghetti.

How to Make It

Heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat in a Dutch oven. Add red pepper and garlic; sauté 20 seconds. Add tomato and arugula; saute 2 minutes or until arugula is wilted. Spoon into a large bowl. Add 1 tablespoon oil, spaghetti, vinegar, salt, and black pepper; toss well. Sprinkle with cheese.
