Pasta with Greens

At this time of year, more often then we should, we end up eating pizza for dinner. Max saved us from another crummy dinner last week by whipping this up for us. It took him maybe 15 minutes, faster then picking up a pizza! It can be altered to fit the needs of anyone (veggie, gluten free, dairy free, etc.) We had it with Meeting Place Pasture's vindaloo sausage and it was yummmy.
  • 1 bunch cooking greens (mustard is great, spinach, kale, chard, or any combination), washed and chopped
  • 1 or 2 stalks green garlic, a couple garlic scapes, or 3-4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • box of pasta, quinoa, rice, pick your starch
  • optional:  parmesean cheese, meeting place pastures sausage, sun dried tomatoes,chickpeas
  • couple tbs. olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Prepare your starch of choice as you do. In the meanwhile, pour oil in your frying pan and put on medium heat. Add garlic and cook for several minutes until tender. Be careful to not burn your garlic. Add your greens and saute until desired tenderness. Toss with drained pasta (or rice or quinoa). Add salt and pepper to taste and any of the optional items of choice. We fried up the sausages separatly and cut them up on top.
