Wash produce before use


Prep the ingredients

Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil for the spaghetti.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate the garlic.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.


Cook the spaghetti

To the pot of boiling water, add the spaghetti and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain the spaghetti, reserving ¼ cup [½ cup] pasta cooking water.
While the water heats and the spaghetti cooks, prepare the sauce.


Make the sauce; finish the pasta

In a large sauce pot over medium-high heat, add the pancetta and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and crisp and the fat is rendered, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the tomatoes and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil, bring to a simmer, and cook, gently crushing the tomatoes with a wooden spoon, until they start to break down, 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Stir in the spaghetti and reserved pasta cooking water, toss to combine, and cook until the sauce thickens slightly, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
When the sauce is almost done, prepare the salad.


Assemble the salad

In a large bowl, toss the arugula with as much house dressing as you like. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the spaghetti and sauce to individual bowls and garnish with the Parmesan and parsley. Serve the salad and any remaining dressing on the side.
