Radish Penne

Another find from the "Cooking with Amy" food blog, this is a simple pasta dish that makes use of an often-overlooked vegetable -- the radish. Even the greens are used, which adds to the nutrition and visual appeal of the finished product. I haven't tried it yet (I literally *just* came across it, and knew I had to share!), but will do so the next time I remember to buy radishes. ;) Prep time is estimated, and includes the cooking of the pasta; if you prepare your veggies while the pasta cooks, the recipe can come together pretty quickly.

ingredients

directions

  • Cook the pasta according to package directions, making sure to reserve a cup of the pasta water.
  • While pasta is cooking, chop the radishes and greens (you should have about a cup and half of radishes).
  • Heat the olive oil in a large pan. Saute the onions and garlic until translucent but not brown. Add the radishes and greens. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the radishes begin to soften and the greens wilt.
  • Toss the cooked, drained pasta with the vegetables and add a few tablespoons of the pasta cooking water to moisten, as needed. Drizzle on another tablespoon or so of olive oil. Add the parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste.

    I have to confess I've never cooked radishes before (I usually just add them to salads)... this was a great place to start. I really enjoyed this. Thanks!
