Sausage, Tomato, and Arugula Fettuccine

I usually substitute spinach in recipes calling for arugula but I decided to give it another try with Sausage, Tomato, and Arugula Fettuccine.  The peppery flavor of the arugula is usually a bit much for me but in this case where it is wilted, the flavor is more subtle, not overpowering, and blends well with the turkey sausage (I used sweet turkey sausage but spicy will work just as well).  The fresh fettucine and juicy cherry tomatoes help keep this pasta dish light while the sausage makes it satisfying.  It didn’t take long to make either which is a plus for those of us with full-time jobs or busy moms.  I’ve become a big fan of using fresh pasta (as I did with Spring Linguine with Basil) instead of dried pasta since it cooks much faster but I’m just wondering why there’s no whole wheat available yet? 😦
