Penne with Beet Greens, Raisins and Tomatoes

Submitted by: MYSHARONANY

Introduction

I found this on line and tweaked it a bit. A great vegetarian dish, but could also work well if you added chicken or pork. I found this on line and tweaked it a bit. A great vegetarian dish, but could also work well if you added chicken or pork.

Ingredients

    6 ounces uncooked penne
    1/4 cup raisins
    1/4 sun dried tomatoes
    1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 cups coarsely chopped trimmed beet greens
    2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
    3-4 plum tomatoes, diced
    1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

Cook the pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain.

While pasta cooks, place raisins and sun dried tomatoes in a small bowl; cover with hot water. Let stand 10 minutes. Drain.

While pasta cooks and raisins & tomatoes soak, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add greens and garlic; sauté 3 minutes or until greens are tender. Stir in pasta, raisins, dried tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, almonds, salt, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper; toss to combine. Sprinkle with cracked black pepper and grated parmesean cheese, if desired.
