Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Begin boiling a pot of water to cook pasta according to package instructions.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Add the red bell pepper, sauté for about 3 minutes, then add the garlic. Let the garlic cook for a minute or two until it becomes golden.
  3. Stir in half of the arugula, along with another tablespoon of the olive oil. Let it start cooking down, 2 minutes or so, then add the rest of the arugula, red pepper flakes and the wine.
  4. Add the beans and salt to taste. Stir to combine. Give it another 3 minutes or so to heat the beans. Then reduce heat to low to keep warm while the pasta finishes cooking.
  5. When the pasta is done cooking, drain, and toss immediately with the arugula mixture and the remaining teaspoon of olive oil. Stir in the feta cheese, lemon juice, and olives, if using. Plate and enjoy!
  6. Just needs another two minutes or so, then set aside to toss with pasta when it’s ready.
