Greens, Red Pepper and Gouda Pasta (serves 3-4)
1 lb spinach or chard
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1/2 lb (1/2 box) pasta (something sturdy such as linguini or rigatoni)
1 1/2 cups shredded smoked gouda
2 Tbsp butter
oil for sauteing
salt and pepper to taste
Cook pasta according to directions. Meanwhile saute onion with some salt for a minute to soften. Add red pepper and garlic and saute a few minutes more. Add greens and saute until they are wilted. Add butter and stir, remove from heat. When the pasta is al dente add to the other ingredients along with the cheese and stir until combined.
Another special note: This dish is quite deliciously smokey from the red pepper and smoked gouda. Therefore it is great to eat if you are craving bacon and cannot get it sustainably, are vegetarian, on a diet or whatever.
