Tasty Tuesday: Spaghetti with Peppers and Arugula

This is a quick and easy meal that’s actually relatively healthy which makes it a win-win for me. I try to make mostly healthy meals, but I also don’t have a lot of time in the evening to make elaborate dinners. This definitely makes for a good weeknight meal, especially if you’ve recently had spaghetti and already have some noodles made. That is exactly what I did because I made way too many noodles one night for dinner and not enough sauce so I needed something to do with those extra noodles so they wouldn’t go to waste.




  • Spaghetti noodles
  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 yellow pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 1/2 cup parmigiano-reggiano cheese


  • Boil spaghetti noodles according to the directions (or use your leftovers)
  • In a skillet, heat olive oil and salute onions
  • Add peppers and season with salt and pepper
  • Cook until tender for about 4-5 minutes
  • (since I used leftover noodles I added them to the skillet at this point to heat them up)
  • Add arugula to skillet and let wilt
  • Top with cheese
Serve and enjoy!

Serve and enjoy!
