Arugula for Lasagna, or whatever you ask of it.
Arugula makes a tasty, simple pasta dish wilted with olive oil, parmesan, and pepper (and tomatoes when you have them) , or a salad with balsamic vinaigrette. Here is a link to a recipe for Arugula Salad with Shaved Parmesan and Balsamic Vinaigrette. You can cook some bacon and onion, and wilt down a pound of arugula for a nice side dish. It's good and good for you, and so you should use it liberally--greens at every meal! We'll have a lot of it at the Midcoast Winter Farmers Market today (1-6 PM at the Topsham Fairgrounds) for a fair price, and anyways, better to pay the farmer now than pay the doctor later, am I right?
We will also have our fresh spinach, garlic, shallots, dry beans, and eggs. Hope to see you there--
