6-14…Aglio Olio crudo…plus

Fresh baby Arugula in the fridge.  I had some with my eggs this morning and with fresh slices of tomato for lunch.  This evening I thought, what the hell, let’s go for the hat trick today.  The result is Aglio Olio crudo with arugula and mushrooms.


Baby arugula, coarsely chopped
White mushrooms
Olive oil
Garlic, finely chopped
Fresh parsley, finely chopped
Grated Gran Padana cheese
Dry basil and oregano


While waiting for the water to boil sauté the mushrooms in olive oil with the dry herbs then set aside

Place the cooked pasta in a serving dish, drizzle with olive oil, and mix in the remaining ingredients.  Add some pasta water as needed.  Serve with the grated cheese.


The only thing keeping this from a ten rating is that I was a little heavy handed with the garlic.  But otherwise this would be a 10 plus!
