DIRECTIONS

  • In a pot of very salty water, set pasta to boil.
  • Toast almonds in a low oven (about 200F), and keep a close eye on them.
  • Heat olive oil to shimmering, then add scallions and garlic; cook until translucent.
  • Reduce heat and add lettuce, cooking until beginning to wilt.
  • Add pasta and a spoonful or two of the salty water, along with red pepper sauce.
  • Add parmesean cheese, and stir. Liquids should begin to form a thin sauce.
  • Reduce until lettuce is thoroughly wilted and sauce has thickened up. Add a little hot pasta water if it's too thick.
  • Sprinkle with toasted almonds and freshly ground black pepper and enjoy with a slice of thick, crusty bread.
