Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 450 gm wholewheat pasta
  • 2 tablespoon pistachios
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese
  • water as required
  • For The Main Dish
  • 1 cup low fat cottage cheese
  • 6 cup arugula

Method:

  • To cook pasta, put a pan on medium flame and add water into it. Mix salt in the water and bring it to a boil.
  • Add pasta to it and let it boil for 5-10 minutes, and lower the flame. Keep checking, if the pasta has boiled by
  • piercing with a fork. It should be soft but not mushy. Once cooked, drain pasta and save 1 cup of the water in
  • which pasta was boiled.
  • Meanwhile, blanch arugula and keep it aside. In a food processor, add blue cheese, low-fat cottage cheese, and
  • 5 cups arugula and blend together. Next, chop pistachios on a chopping board.
  • Now in a saucepan, add boiled pasta, cheese and arugula mixture and the remaining water in which pasta was
  • boiled. Add black pepper powder and remaining arugula. Mix well and serve. (NOTE: If you do not like the
  • taste of raw arugula, you can steam it for 2-3 minutes before blending it in food processor.)
