This is a Giada De Laurentiis recipe from a Food Network 'Everyday Italian' episode about cooking for one. I tried it after seeing it on there and it is the most fabulous, easy and quick recipe ever. Thanks for posting it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of the water.
  2. In medium bowl, mix the salad greens with the sun-dried tomatoes, goat cheese, and Parmesan. Top with warm pasta and 1/2 cup of the reserved pasta water. Toss to combine and wilt the greens. Season with a pinch each of salt and pepper, or to taste. Garnish with additional Parmesan, if desired, and serve.
