I decided I needed to eat some real food after 2 days of eating my mom’s leftover ham, goldfish and dinosaur oatmeal, so I made some fettuccine with greens. When compared to what I was eating before, this was a gourmet meal. The recipe is really simple, but it tastes amazing—it looks quite nice too.
This dish has two basic ingredients: pasta and greens. The greens can be any leafy green, but I like to use either spinach or arugula because they are the easiest to cook.
Fettuccine with wilted greens
Source: Joy of Cooking
- 1/2 small onion, diced
- 1 box fettuccine
- 3 handfuls of spinach or arugula
- 3 tbsp of olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add garlic and onion to pan and cook and cook until onion is just cooked, about 2-3 minutes. Change heat to high and add greens. Cook, stirring, until greens are wilted. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Fill a pot with water. Salt the water and bring to a boil. Cook pasta in pot for about 10 minutes. Drain well.
- Toss greens with pasta. Add feta or goat cheese, if desired. Top with parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
