Herb Highlight

Yummers! I have recently discovered the use of rucola (arugula). I have been using this Italian herb so much, its like my new basil. Rucola is a zesty, spicy herb. It gives a refreshing kick to any dish.

Seen above, I garnished my zucca ravioli (butternut squash ravioli) with a light white cream sauce, cherry tomatoes and rucola. The rucola gives this dish a whole new taste, so refreshing!

Try this simple white sauce:
1 cube butter
1 cup shredded or grated parmesan
1 cup half + half
2 Tbsp. cream cheese
2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp. minced garlic

Bring to a boil. Stir constantly until thick. Pour over pasta of choice and garnish with halved cherry tomatoes and rucola.

On this dish I did laura's bruschetta but garnished with rucola instead of basil.

Try out this Italian herb, you can find rucola/arugula at most grocery stores.

Bon Appetit!
