Recipe for Beet Greens Penne with Sweet Peppers, Capers and Pine Nuts serves 4


1 lb. penne pasta

3 big bunches of beet greens roughly chopped (maybe 8 cups or so, uncooked)

1/4 C. pine nuts

1 medium onion diced

1 medium sweet pepper diced (I used a couple of long thin quirky sweet Italian peppers called Jimmy Nardellos)

2 Tbs. capers

Approx. 1/3 C. sour cream c

hopped basil and parmesan for garnish

Put large pot of water on to boil for the pasta. Once its boiling, liberally salt the water and cook penne according to package instructions.

In a large skillet, toast pine nuts for a few minutes just to bring out the flavor, but be careful not to burn. Put them in a bowl and set aside.

In the same pan, sautee onions for a few minutes until they start to become translucent and soft. Add in the sweet peppers and sautee until they soften. Carefully add in all of the beet greens, turning them over to wilt without flying onto the stove.

When they have all wilted and started to cook, add capers, toasted pine nuts, sour cream, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well, and if it isnt saucy enough, pour in a little of the pasta water, a few tablespoons at a time.

Top individual servings of pasta with the bright veggies (which will be a little pink from the beet stems), and garnish with basil and parmesan. Enjoy!

Yay!  I'm so glad to have inspired you.  Cold cereal is fine for a snack, but really, it's not dinner.
