Heat saute pan over medium heat, add olive oil, onions and garlic, sauté until onions are just about translucent. Add potatoes, let cook for about 5 minutes until they start to color. Add chicken broth, let come to a boil and cook until potatoes are tender and broth has reduced away, about 15 minutes. Add more broth if it gets too dry. Add pepper and set aside. Meanwhile, cook pasta in boiling salted water. Drain pasta and save ¼ cup of cooking water. Toss with potato mixture, fontina and goat cheese, arugula, and add pasta water until desired consistency is reached. Add truffle oil and lightly toss. Top with more pepper, serve and enjoy!
