Recipe Reviewed: Linguine with Chickpeas and Arugula

Linguine with Chickpeas and Arugula is a delicious dish!
Thursday Menu – Linguine with Chickpeas and Arugula, Garden Salad
Farm Share Food – Peppers, Garlic, Arugula, Salad Mix, Tomatoes, Onions
I liked the idea of cutting the arugula into ribbons.  I think it helped distribute the arugula throughout the pasta dish better.
It turned out I did not have any chickpeas, but had some leftover chicken.  I cut the chicken into small pieces and used them as a chickpea substitute.  Worked great.
I cut down on the amount of butter.  I used 2 T of butter and 2 T of olive oil in the beginning to cook the vegetable and did not add any more fat when tossing the whole dish together.
