Chicken Arugula Pasta

Chicken Arugula PastaI love pasta! It is so flexible-you can put almost anything in it. I left the arugula too long to eat it uncooked, so I decided to use some of the huge quantity of onions and garlic we’ve been getting and throw it all in a pasta. We grilled some chicken breasts and added them in. It was so satisfying!
