This may sound like an odd combination of ingredients, but it is delicious. Use fresh ingredients if you can--it really does make a difference. Even with canned, though, it is very good.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until al dente. Drain, rinse and set aside.
  2. In a large pan over medium-high heat, saute garlic and red pepper flakes in olive oil until garlic is golden. Add onion, greens, and corn and cook until the greens begin to wilt.
  3. Add the tomatoes, blackeyed peas, salt, and balsamic vinegar. When vegetables just begin to simmer, mix with pasta and cook until thoroughly heated.
  4. Garnish with Toasted Spiced Pecans.
  5. For Toasted Spiced Pecans:.
