Spaghetti With Lime & Arugula (Rocket) image

I love the zesty taste of this recipe, and the fact that it's so different. I never would have thought that lettuce could be good with pasta but it's lovely.

Time 1h

Yield 4-6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 11

400 g spaghetti
2 limes (for zest)
2 garlic cloves, minced
fresh ground black pepper
1 red chile, seeded and chopped
2 tablespoons capers packed in salt
8 slices prosciutto or 8 slices rindless bacon, chopped
150 g arugula, shredded (rocket)
2 tablespoons fruity olive oil
150 g feta cheese, marinated in oil


  • Cook spaghetti in a large saucepan of rapidly boiling water until it is al dente.
  • Drain.
  • While that's cooking, remove the zest from the limes and finely shred to make one tablespoonful.
  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat.
  • If using bacon, add it to the hot oil first and cook until it starts to crisp before adding the lime rind, garlic, chilli and capers.
  • Cook for a minute or until fragrant.
  • If using prosciutto, stir it in at this point and cook for two minutes or until crisp.
  • Add the spaghetti to the pan and toss to coat and heat through.
  • To serve, toss the rocket and a bit of lime juice through the pasta and pile into serving bowls.
  • Top with the marinated feta, a little of its oil, and a generous grinding of black pepper.
  • Serve with a lime wedge on each plate, so people can add more if they like.

This spaghetti dish was a bit too tangy for my taste. I think I would have preferred a milder citrus flavor.
