Recipe by Saeriu
This dish resulted from a variation of a plainer garlic chicken scampi. It's quite good and a good way to introduce yourself or someone else to dandelions as they're quite mild in this dish. I use whatever pasta I have on hand--use your favorite. Gather the dandelion leaves before the herb blooms or the resulting taste will be bitter. The servings are normal size but feel free to add ingredients to suit you. This is a fairly flexible dish; you can add more pasta to save on costs or leave out the chicken and use shrimp or all veggies (zucchini, broccoli, or tomatoes are all wonderful).

- 1 1⁄2 cups dry pasta
- 5 large minced garlic cloves, more if desired
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 -2 tablespoon butter
- 1 teaspoon parsley
