Spaghetti with Tomatoes and Arugula

Spaghetti with Tomatoes and Arugula Recipe


  • 3 cups cherry/ plum tomatoes halved
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup fresh arugula leaves coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 pack spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • salt and pepper


  1. Combine the halved fresh tomatoes, garlic, balsamic vinegar, fresh arugula, olive oil in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper (not a lot of salt because the balsamic vinegar is already quite salty) Give a good toss and let sit for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to boil. Add some salt and the spaghetti pasta, without breaking them. Cook as per pack instructions, around 8=9 minutes till al dente, stirring occasionally.
  3. Drain the pasta, and add it to a large serving bowl. Add tomato and arugula mixture and toss to combine well.
  4. Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese and serve.
