EASY but Company Worthy Linguine with Arugula & Pecorino!

This is a recipe from Giada's cookbook "Everyday Pasta" which I am currently OBSESSED WITH.

This pasta is incredibly simple, but as is often the case, the most simple ingredients can create the best tasting food.

I sauteed some cubed chicken breast to add to this dish as I love a little protein in my pasta, but it is also fabulous on its own.

Linguine with Butter, Pecorino, Arugula and Black Pepper

(serves 6)

You'll Need:
* 1 lb of Linguine
* 1/4 cup unsalted butter at room temp
* 1 & 1/4 cups of very finely grated Pecorino Roman cheese
*1&1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
* 1 cup coarsely chopped arugula
* Salt to taste
(if you want add shrimp or chicken sauteed in a pan)

To Do:

* Fill a large pot with water & add salt. Bring to a boil over high heat.
* Add the Linguine and cook until it is al dente - stir frequently - (following timing instructions on box)
* Drain when done, reserving 1&1/2 cups of the pasta water (THIS IS A GREAT TIP FOR OTHER PASTA DISHES TOO)
* Immediately toss the hot pasta in a large bowl with the butter to coat.
* Then gradually sprinkle in the cheese, pepper and enough of the reserved pasta water evenly over the linguine to moisten.
* Last, add the arugula and toss it all together!
* Add a little salt and pepper to taste
* I also added a handful of cheese bread twists, but you can decorate as you wish!
