Pasta Puttanesca with Arugula

Pasta Puttanesca with Arugula

Pasta Puttanesca

Lately I’ve been struggling with an obsession.  It’s called olives.  I cannot stop thinking about them, and I cannot stop popping them in my mouth.  What is happening to me?  I hate olives!  This just goes to show that food preferences CAN change.  First it was cilantro, and now this.

As someone who swells up in the face easily and resembles a Jigglypuff (my lil’ brother was obsessed with Pokemon…don’t judge), whenever excessive sodium is introduced into the body, I try to stay away from salty foods as much as possible.  Not this time, I suppose.  To help with portion control, I decided to incorporate them into various dishes, Pasta Puttanesca being one of them.  I share the recipe over at the Healthy Aperture Blog, so I hope you’ll stop by and check it out!

  11. I’m not a fan of olives, but I was also not a fan of avocado until this year. I normally sub them out with capers, so I’d probably just leave them out in this recipe. It looks amazing!
