Yield: 2 Servings

|8 \N||Cloves garlic; finely chopped|

Bring 2 quarts water to a boil in a large pot. Add 1 tablespoon salt, stir to dissolve, then add pasta and cook at a boil until just tender, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a saute pan, heat olive oil with garlic and pepper flakes over medium heat. As soon as the garlic begins to turn golden, add the arugula and stir until it wilts. Stir in bread crumbs and keep warm.
Place butter and ¼ cup pasta cooking water in a bowl. Drain pasta and add it to the bowl. Add garlic-arugula mixture and toss. Season with pepper and serve immediately with a simple red or white wine.
