recipe 7: pasta with tomatoes, arugula, and goat cheese

Another great recipe from "Williams-Sonoma Essentials of Healthy Eating"

3/4 lb cavatappi, fusilli, or ziti
2 cups arugula
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cups grape or cherry tomatoes
1 clove minced garlic
1/4 cup goat cheese
freshly ground black pepper

Cook and drain pasta, reserving about 1/4 cup of the cooking water. Place the pasta in a large bowl, mix in the arugula, and keep warm.

Just before the pasta is ready, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the tomatoes and roll them around in the pan. Sprinkle on the garlic. Keep the tomatoes moving until their skins crack. Add tomatoes to the pasta. Add the goat cheese, mix. Season with pepper and add the saved pasta water for more moisture if needed.

I served it with a green salad and crusty bread. I will definitely make this again!
