Recipe – Arugula Salad with Penne, Garbanzo Beans and Sun Dried Tomatoes

I am in the mood for “Spring” meals and this looks great to me…  and EASY!!!  I found it on my favorite recipe site…  www.skinnytaste.com

Peppery arugula tossed with nutty chick peas, pasta, sun dried tomatoes, shaved parmesan and balsamic vinegar create a simple yet delicious main dish salad – perfect for lunch or dinner. Portions are large, loaded with fiber and very satisfying.

A few tips to make this simple salad fantastic – buy baby arugula, it has a milder peppery flavor. Use extra virgin olive oil, and a really good aged balsamic vinegar and most importantly use a premium imported parmesan such as Parmigiano Reggiano for optimum results.
