Rocket Salad with Penne Pasta

Rocket Salad with Penne

Rocket, or arugala as it is called in some parts of the world, goes so well with pasta. This salad, quite simple to make, mixes the two with a lemony dressing.  It is a more filling salad than those that we have made lately, so very suitable for cooler weather during Late Summer and Autumn, and also as Winter approaches.

Penne Rigate

Rocket Salad with Penne

Mix lots of Rocket (arugala) with some cold whole wheat (or ordinary) penne, lemon zest, olive oil and parmesan cheese. Make sure there is more rocket than pasta – it is an Rocket Salad with Penne, not a Penne Salad with Rocket.

recipe notes and alternatives
This recipe loves the tang of citrus, so you can tuck some cuquats into the salad if you have them handy.
