Smoked Salmon and Arugula Tossed with Spaghetti

I think this dish would be a wonderful addition to a brunch menu as well as a great alternative for serving smoked salmon. The bled of the salty smoky salmon with the bite of the arugula compliment one another beautifully. (Although the arugula does loose some of its bite after sauteing.) You only need to season with a little salt and some pepper. I really like this dish!


12 oz of dried spaghetti
2 T olive oil
1 garlic clove finely chopped
4 oz smoked salmon sliced into thin strips
2 oz of arugula
salt and pepper


Bring large pot of water to a boil and add your spaghetti, cook 8-10 minutes.
Heat olive oil in skillet and add the garlic (I love olive oil and garlic, so I always keep a carafe of olive oil with garlic cloves in it so I have a flavored oil to work with when recipes call for this combination) Watch your garlic so it doesn't burn and saute for one minute. Toss in the arugula and salmon and stir for one minute.
Drain your pasta and toss with the salmon and arugula. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
