Whole Wheat Spaghetti with No-Cook Sauce of Tomatoes, Arugula, Olives, and Capers (Meatless, Dairy-Free, Vegan)



I've become a fan of no-cook pasta sauce and I loved this one with Tomatoes, Arugula, Olives, and Capers.

(For Friday Flashbacks I feature past recipes that have been my personal favorites, and today I'm spotlighting this recipe for Whole Wheat Spaghetti with No-Cook Sauce of Tomatoes, Arugula, Olives, and Capers not only to encourage the arugula and capers fans to try this sauce, but also as a reminder for everyone about all the amazing no-cook pasta sauces you can make with juicy garden tomatoes! See after the recipe for links to more sauces of this type, and enjoy!)

When I found this recipe for spaghetti topped with no-cook pasta sauce of tomatoes, arugula, Kalamata olives, and capers in the August 2006 issue of Bon Appetit Magazine, I immediately planned to try it. I had tomatoes, and twice I bought arugula to make the sauce, and twice I ate the arugula before any sauce got made.

Then when it was approaching the end of the fresh tomato season I bought arugula again and finally made the recipe. I'm a huge fan of this type of no-cook sauce, and this sauce with chopped arugula and a touch of spiciness might be my favorite one yet. If you like arugula, get your hands on a few fresh tomatoes before it's too late, and I promise you'll love this great summer-into-fall dish.
And one more note about this meal before I get to the recipe. Even though I love 100% whole wheat Italian spaghetti and consider it to be a healthy food, I know some people might want less carbs in a dish like this. Simply using much less spaghetti and more of the arugula, tomatoes, and olives can easily make this a more carb-conscious choice. But this delicious no-cook sauce would also be lovely over briefly sauteed Zucchini Noodles if you'd like to cut the carbs down even more.
