Yummy Pasta with Collard Greens
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 large cloves of garlic (crushe'd or minced)
1 teaspoon each of oregano and basil
2 cups collard greens or kale (finely chopped)
1 or 2 chopped green onions
1/2 cup of pine nuts
2-3 cups of pasta of choice (penne is best)
Collard greens and kale are a most excellent source of calcium. They can be used interchangably in this recipe but I prefer the collard greens.
Chop collard greens finely. Place in a microwave safe dish cover with lid and microwave approximately 4 minutes.
In a fry pan on low heat saute oil, garlic, and green onion until fragrant (about 3-4 minutes). Add basil and oregano and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add collard greens and pine nuts.
Toss with cooked pasta. If it is too dry just add more olive oil. Enjoy in vegan bliss!!!
