Ingredients:
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
450 gm wholewheat pasta
2 tablespoon pistachios
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 cup blue cheese
water as required

For The Main Dish:
1 cup low fat cottage cheese
6 cup arugula

Procedure:
Step 1
To cook pasta, put a pan on medium flame and add water into it. Mix salt in the water and bring it to a boil. Add pasta to it and let it boil for 5-10 minutes, and lower the flame. Keep checking, if the pasta has boiled by piercing with a fork. It should be soft but not mushy. Once cooked, drain pasta and save 1 cup of the water in which pasta was boiled.

Step 2
Meanwhile, blanch arugula and keep it aside. In a food processor, add blue cheese, low-fat cottage cheese, and 5 cups arugula and blend together. Next, chop pistachios on a chopping board.

Step 3
Now in a saucepan, add boiled pasta, cheese and arugula mixture and the remaining water in which pasta was boiled. Add black pepper powder and remaining arugula. Mix well and serve. (NOTE: If you do not like the taste of raw arugula, you can steam it for 2-3 minutes before blending it in food processor.)
