Radish Recipe!

Radishes with Pasta and Arugula
20 radishes, sliced
2 cups arugula
2 tablespoons olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped

12-ounce package penne pasta cooked

1/4 cup cooking water from pasta

1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Salt and pepper
  1. Wash and trim radishes. Thinly slice.
  2. Rinse arugula leaves and tear into small pieces.
 3. Heat oil in large pan. Add onions and cook just until they begin to soften.    Add radish slices and cook for five minutes.  Add arugula and cook for another two minutes until radishes are almost translucent and arugula wilts.  Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.
4. Add to pasta and toss.  Add cooking liquid from pasta and stir. Sprinkle cheese and toss.
5. Serve with additional grated parmesan and freshly ground black pepper.

I was looking for a way to cook radishes to see if planting them in our garden would be a good idea.  I also have a ton of arugula to use up and the kids find it a little spicy in salads.  In this recipe it is all delicious and they came back for seconds  . . . and thirds . . . and fourths!


  1. I didn't even know you could cook radishes! I love 'em raw, though. I guess I'll have to try this now. :0)

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting! Now I know what you mean when you say "I love comments". I feel the exact same way. Your blog inspired me to begin. The radish pasta was awesome!
