Walnuts, like many other nuts, are high in healthy unsaturated fats, which means they can go rancid quickly. To prevent this, store all nuts in the refrigerator or freezer.

In large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until al dente, about 12 minutes. Drain and return to pot, reserving 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the cooking liquid.

Meanwhile, in skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook garlic just until beginning to turn golden, about 1 minute.

Stir in walnuts, bread crumbs, salt and hot pepper flakes; cook, stirring, until golden, about 5 mintues. Add to pasta along with arugula; toss to coat, adding as much of the reserved cooking liquid as desired. Sprinkle with Romano cheese.
