Bresaola is a cured beef product similar to pancetta.
For vegetarian: omit meat and replace with ¼ cup (60 mL) olive oil.
- Cook the pasta in salted water, per instructions. Set aside.
- Place bresaola or pancetta in a large sauté pan. Cook 2-4 minutes over medium-high heat until golden brown.
- Add onion and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes.
- Place tomatoes, capers and olives into pan, sautéing and stirring 3-4 minutes.
- Remove from heat. Add basil and arugula and cooked pasta to the mixture. Toss together well.
- Serve in bowls, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
