So I get to eating first, and declare this dinner DELICIOUS! He says, “Great, so I’m not going to like it”. After 2 or 3 bites, he too declares it delicious. We have a winner!!! I’ll say it right now, this one will be served several times this summer. It could be made ahead, we’ll go to the pool, and have dinner waiting for us when we return. Last night’s version was made with arugula and green garlic from the market. I can’t wait for those sweet little tomatoes fresh from the farm to give this dish that much more flavor.
Garlicky Spaghetti with Beans and Greens
I think this dish worked because it has heat from the crushed red pepper and sweetness from the tomatoes that doesn’t allow the bitterness of the greens to overpower. Any bitter green would work in this dish, and there should be lots of those during CSA season. We also had this for Meatless Monday and it makes for a great choice with the beans, pasta, and veggies making for a complete meal. Like I said, we have a winner!
