Pasta with greens

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
½ cup Sundried tomatoes (do not use tomatoes packed in oil)
1 pounds Dried pasta (penne, rigatoni, twists, etc.)
1 pounds Greens (collards, kale, beet green, chard or a mixture of these)
2 tablespoons Olive oil
1 large Onion, thinly sliced
½ teaspoon Hot red pepper flakes
2 Cloves garlic, minced , (up to 4)
1 tablespoon Dried basil
2 tablespoons Capers
Grated Parmesan Cheese, optional

Soak the sundried tomatoes in hot water until soft, about 10 minutes.

Drain, cut into pieces, and reserve. Begin cooking with pasta. While pasta is cooking, prepare greens: wash, drain, remove all coarse stems and mid ribs, then chop coarsely and reserve.

Heat the olive oil in a skillet, add the onion and red pepper flakes and saute over medium high

heat. When onions begin to colour, ass the tomatoes and chopped greens, tossing well to wilt. Mash in garlic, add basil and cook for 5 minutes. Add capers with a little of their liquid.

Drain the pasta and mix with vegetables. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese if desired.

Yield: 4 servings
