3. Easy Arugula Salad

"UNBELIEVABLE. The Parmesan and the dressing go together perfectly and really complement the zippiness of the arugula." Naomi Witzke

This is a wonderful side dish to accompany any meal, with the ingredients blending together beautifully with a simple dressing. Alongside the arugula it includes; cherry tomatoes, pine nuts, avocado and parmesan as well as a delicious rice vinegar and olive oil dressing.

Preparation couldn't be simpler, just pop all the ingredients (except the avocado) together and mix. The avocado left to one side can now be sliced over the top of the salad to help attract the hungry hordes (not that they need much attracting).

6. Linguini With Arugula, Garlic & Parmesan


"Pretty sure I could eat this every day. I love simple pasta recipes, and you can’t go wrong with arugula, garlic, and parmesan. Yum!" Taylor

If you're anything like me you were probably salivating just reading the title of this little beauty. While cooking the pasta, heat up some olive oil in a frying pan and add sliced garlic, cooking until a nice gold or very light brown color. Then add the olive oil and garlic to your cooked and drained pasta along with the arugula and Parmesan. 

So many delicious and complimentary flavors bouncing around the tongue in this recipe, it's an absolute winner.

7. Fresh Tomato and Arugula Pasta


"YUMMY and a great thing to use up fresh tomatoes!" Carrie Wilson

This is a similar recipe to the previous one in terms of how it's made and as with the linguini recipe it's filling enough to be perfect for lunches or dinners.

You begin cooking the pasta then get a frying pan or skillet and cook off the onion and garlic in olive oil, add chopped tomatoes and red pepper before stirring it through the arugula. Once you've drained the pasta it's just a question of adding the skillet ingredients and topping with pine nuts and slivers of parmesan.

9. Quick And Easy Goat Cheese, Raisin, Walnut And Arugula Flatbread Pizza


"Perfect pizza as per usual, and I'm loving the arugula (or rocket as we call it in Australia). I add it to every single pizza I make! I'm addicted. Try it with a wedge of lemon?" Bec

As the title says, this a lovely simple dish that's great to whip up in a hurry. 

Grab some of your favorite flatbreads, toast them in the oven for a few minutes then top with the goat cheese, raisins and walnuts and pop back in the oven to melt the cheese and warm the ingredients. While you are waiting, make the arugula dressing and toss it through the leaves, then just top the pizza with it. Simple and delicious as that!

10. Arugula Pizza with Poached Eggs


"This pizza was great!! very simple and even my whole family of completely different picky taste buds enjoyed it! I would definitely recommend buying a thin pizza crust as said in the recipe" cewqqq

This is another of those delicious titles that gets my saliva buds saliving*. It may just be the mention of poached eggs or it may be too close to lunch time but I need to eat this now! 

You can use ready-made pizza dough or use the flatbread trick from the previous recipe to form the base. If you do use the flatbread trick remember not to cook for as long.

Start cooking the base then add the cheese and return to the oven. Cook your poached egg as you like it and toss the arugula with the rest of the ingredients. Then just take out your base and top with the arugula and egg. Delicious!

Roasted Parmesan Asparagus Recipe

Easy to make and it makes asparagus tasty. We had this with steak and it made for a great meal.” – Vettech9902

Asparagus is delicious on its own but add in some parmesan and you'll really bring a new taste dimension to this crunchy green veggie. Parmesan cheese thoroughly enhances the flavor of asparagus and offers a creamy taste as a nice counterpoint to its natural crispness.

This will only take a maximum of 10 minutes to prepare and preparation is a  simple affair as you just clean up the asparagus and mix the ingredients in a bowl (without the parmesan cheese). Then it's just a matter of roasting it for 10 minutes, bringing it out, using the cheese to coat your asparagus then popping it back in the oven for 5-10 minutes more or until it's cooked and still offers a crunch to the bite.
