Easy Pasta with Greens

  • Yield servings

Kids love the curly fusilli pasta, but any kind will work.

Use any in-season greens you like.. If you use a hearty green such as kale, saute longer in the skillet.


12 ounces long pasta, such as fusilli, fettucine, linguine or spaghetti
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, chopped
Fresh greens such as spinach or kale, cut into strips


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Heat butter and olive oil in a large skillet. Add greens and garlic. Saute until tender, about 3 minutes for spinach and 10 for heartier greens, such as kale. Add hot pasta to skillet. Toss well. Use leftovers in Kitchen Sink Frittata.
