2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the black bean spaghetti

  • Measure two-thirds of the spaghetti. Save the rest for another use.
Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil. Add the black bean spaghetti and cook until just tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and transfer to a medium bowl.
While the water heats and the spaghetti cooks, prepare the ratatouille.


Prep and cook the ratatouille

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
  • Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then crosswise on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the zucchini and cook, stirring once or twice, until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to release their juices, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the vegetables cook, prepare the gremolata.


Make the gremolata

  • Coarsely chop the walnuts.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Zest and juice the lemon, keeping the zest and juice separate.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
In a small bowl, stir together the walnuts, garlic, parsley, lemon zest, 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] lemon juice, 1 to 2 tablespoons oil, and as many chile flakes as you like. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Finish the pasta

To the bowl with the spaghetti, add the ratatouille and arugula and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the spaghetti and ratatouille to individual bowls. Top with the gremolata, sprinkle with as many remaining chile flakes as you like, and serve.
