Pasta and Greens

Adapted from  It originally calls for rocket/rucola/arugula and orzo but in our constant struggle to remember to use up all the greens in the veg box before they go bad, we've found it to be good with all kinds of combinations.

Makes:  2 servings

  •  ½ - 1 cup pasta, cooked according to package directions
  • 5-7 cups (not packed) rocket/rucola, spinach, chard, kale, or similar (not lettuce)
  • olive oil
  • 8-12 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ~50g semi-soft goat cheese
  • salt & pepper
Clean, de-stem (if necessary) and roughly chop greens.  Heat a bit of olive oil and cook the greens by the handful, letting them reach varying degrees of wiltedness.  With the last handful of greens, also add the cooked pasta, tomato halves, and goat cheese and cook until all heated.  Remove from heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.  Drizzle with olive oil if desired.
