  • 1 Garlic Clove Finely chopped
  • 30 g Rocket (Arugula) Washed
  • 15 g Fresh Basil Washed & finely chopped
  • ¼ tsp Black Pepper Freshly ground


  • In a saucepan of boiling water add ¼ tsp salt and cook your Whole Wheat Pappardelle according to the packet instructions. While the pasta is cooking, prepare your remaining ingredients and get your equipment ready.
  • When the pasta has about 5 minutes remaining, start to cook the rest of the ingredients. Heat the extra virgin olive oil in a large frying pan. After 1 minute, add the chopped walnuts to the pan and fry in the oil for 1 minute until fragrant. Now add the sundried tomatoes and chopped garlic. Stir for another minute.

Add the rocket and basil at the very last minute and lightly toss it through the pasta to warm and wilt. Finally, season with the remaining salt and pepper and serve immediately.
