Pasta with Peas + Bacon + Arugula

Apr 15, 2020

I had so many requests to share this recipe I made for Easter. It was so yummy. The dressing really makes the salad, it is so fresh and vibrant. I found it was best served right after making it. If you have leftovers bring to room temperature before serving. You could sub spinach for the arugula but I love the peppery arugula with the peas, bacon and creamy dressing! Enjoy!
