Wash produce before use
Soak the sun-dried tomatoes
While the sun-dried tomatoes soak, prepare the penne.
Cook the penne
While the water heats and the penne cooks, prepare the lemon slices.
Prep and cook the lemon
- Zest the lemon and trim off the ends. Cut the lemon in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons. Discard any seeds. Set aside the zest for finishing the pasta.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the lemon slices, season with salt and ¼ teaspoon sugar, if using, and cook, stirring often, until starting to brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.
While the lemon slices cook, start preparing the remaining ingredients.
Prep and cook the remaining ingredients; finish the pasta
- Peel and thinly slice the yellow onion.
- Rinse the white beans.
- Drain the sun-dried tomatoes and discard the soaking liquid; coarsely chop the tomatoes.
- Coarsely chop the walnuts.
- Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.
Remove from the heat and fold in the arugula and sun-dried tomatoes. Sprinkle with the lemon slices and walnuts and gently toss to combine. Drizzle with the balsamic vinegar and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
