Pasta and Greens
Pasta of choice (Penne is my fav for this recipe)
2-3 cups sliced collard greens
1/4 - 1/2 cup pine nuts
1-2 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
oregano and/or basil to taste
salt and pepper to taste
While pasta is cooking, sautee garlic and spices in oil. Add pine nuts to garlic and oil sautee. Add more oil if necessary. Chop collard greens. Place the greens in a microwave safe dish and microwave for approximately 7 minutes or until cooked.
Toss all ingredients together and serve with a warm crusty bread. Enjoy.
This is an especially satisfying recipe knowing that collard greens are jammed packed with calcium!
