Whole Wheat Linguine with Arugula & Edamame

Edamame—sweet green soybeans—are perfect partners with pungent dark greens and garlic. Combine them all with imported Italian whole wheat linguine or farro spaghetti from Manicaretti and you have a dish packed with flavor and fiber.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups shelled edamame
  • 8 oz whole wheat linguine or farro
  • 1 Tbs extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 cups coarsely chopped arugula
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Directions

  • Cook the edamame in boiling salted water until they are crisp-tender, 3 minutes. Remove them to a bowl with a slotted spoon.
  • Add the pasta to the same water, and cook according to package directions. Drain it in a colander, drizzle with 1/2 teaspoon of the oil, and set it aside.
  • In a large, nonstick skillet, heat the remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook 15 seconds. Mix in the arugula, coating it with the oil, and cook until wilted, 2 minutes. Mix in the edamame and remove the pan from the heat. Add the drained pasta, stirring until it is warmed through, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Divide the pasta and vegetables among 4 shallow pasta bowls or dinner plates, and top with equal amounts of the cheese. Serve hot or at room temperature. Pair with Sauvignon Blanc or Semillon.
