Lemony Beet-Green Pasta
  • 1 sliced vidalia onion
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced thin
  • whole wheat penne pasta, cooked
  • 1 large bunch of washed beet greens, stems removed
  • olive oil
  • zest of one lemon
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • ⅓-1/2 C white wine
  • salt and pepper
  • parmesan cheese
  • sliced almonds - optional - about 1 TBS per serving
  1. In a large pan, heat olive oil on medium and add garlic and onion. Once the onion has softened (about 3 minutes) add in the beet greens, stirring almost constantly, for 2 minutes.
  2. Add in zest, juice and wine and bring to a low simmer. Boiling will reduce the sauce too much.
  3. Add in pasta to combine, season with salt and pepper and serve with parmesan and sliced almonds.
