Linguine with Pancetta, Prawns (Shrimp) and Rocket (Arugula)

A few days ago, my friend Michael, from Me, My Food and I, posted the most fabulous linguine with pancetta, shrimp and arugula, and to top it off, he made a video of this amazing preparation. I couldn't stop thinking about his creation, so wouldn't you know, the next day I just had to make it. The only different addition, I had a red bell pepper on hand and diced it...sauteed it to add for color, and flavor.
Michael is such a sweetheart, and a talented cook and baker...Nigella Lawson should be so proud of all of the amazing cakes that he makes from her recipes.Do check out his blog, and you'll see what I'm talking about!
I didn't have linguine, so I used spaghetti with this super amazing pasta dish. There's something strange about calling arugula "rocket"...or as the French call it, Roquette...either way, Michael was right; the peppery awesome flavor, of the rocket, adding it in at the end certainly makes this this so delicious! So thank you Michael, this is a winner for sure!
For the recipe, do visit Michael's blog, @ Me, My Food, and I , and enjoy the video, as well!

  4. Elisabeth, this looks so, so good... better than mine, I say :) Lovely addition of red pepper. I will be trying that next time. I am so pleased you love the pasta dish. It's weird when I was a kid, I hated arugula, but now I cannot get enough of it. I just adore the peppery flavours. Strange how our palette change with time.
    Thanks for the mention. You have a wonderful day my friend.

  28. The colors are so beautiful in this dish! We don't eat much meat but seafood is often on the menu. These shrimp look so tasty with the pasta and gorgeous veggies. I'd be thinking about dinner all day if I knew I was having this. :)

  29. Drool!!! Extra large shrimp ... oh wait, that's an extra large pic. Still ... drool!
    You know, I've just realised, how I make my shopping list these days. I visit all my favorite food blogs early in the morning, drool at the pics and decide the list :D
    Next ones on the list ... shrimp and rocket.

  30. Lovely post, Elizabeth! I never knew that arugula was called rocket, until recently when I googled “rocket”. This dish looks scrumptious!

    1. Kathy-it annoyed me for the longest time why call arugula "rocket?" The plastic box of the baby arugula that I bought said ROQUETTE on it, and Arugula. I guess it comes from the French term, and in Briain, Australia, and New Zealand they call it ROCKET!
