- 6 cloves garlic, finely diced
- I bunch flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
- extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 lb baby arugula
- kosher salt
- red pepper flakes

Cook brown rice spaghetti in large pot of boiling salted water- 2 minutes short of cooking time. It should be al dente.
When the pasta is ready, drain and save a glass of its starchy cooking water.
At the same time, heat a generous amount of extra virgin olive oil in a deep, wide skillet.
Add the red onion, garlic and kosher salt. Cook slowly over low heat until golden. Add the chopped parsley and a dash of red pepper flakes. Continue to cook for 5 minutes.
Add some of the cooking water to this mixture. Simmer for a moment to make it thick and creamy. Add the spaghetti and toss well over the heat. Season with salt and pepper.
Put spaghetti in serving platter and top with baby arugula. Toss gently to wilt arugula before serving.
