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!
