Arugula Penne Salad

A few weeks ago I had leftover arugula and leftover pasta in my fridge that was not getting used.

I didn’t want either ingredient to go bad, so I put the two in a bowl, added a few other ingredients and hoped for the best.

Thankfully, it tasted great. Even my husband thought so, and he’s not a big fan of arugula. We have had this salad a few times now and it’s yummy every time!
