"I wanna sit behind the scenes and see nothin' but the greens.." -Method Man
This is a fantastic fusion of Italian pasta and beans with Southern collard greens. The flavor is fantastic and the beans, pasta, and parmesan mellow the bitterness of the greens that some people don't like. A great dish to serve for a quick weeknight meal or even a casual dinner party.
I'd recommend that you slice the greens fairly thinly. They'll cook a bit faster and more evenly and the dish will be easier to eat.
Servings: 4 | Serving size: 2 ounces pasta with beans and greens
Cooking time: 30 minutes
