Lemon Fusilli with Arugula

I’ve been drooling over this recipe (Barefoot Contessa at Home), waiting for our CSA to send more arugula.   The online version of the recipe also includes broccoli.  Ordinarily, I wouldn’t have known that, but because we have several friends participating in the same CSA, one of our friends e-mailed me the online version of the recipe and pointed out that our CSA box had all of the vegetables for this recipe last week.  It was as if it was meant to be.  This was even better than it looks, which is saying something.  I would definitely make this for guests (including vegetarians!), and the leftovers were just as good cold the next day.  I’m toying with the idea of making a spring version next year with asparagus and spinach.  I used a whole grain pasta (Barilla Plus rotini), which held up well to the flavors of the sauce and the vegetables.
