Since moving to South Carolina last year, The Hungry Wife has been trying to embrace our new southern lifestyle. A lot of that is trying out new foods, and ways to cook them. So, when we saw this Creamy Pasta and Greens recipe in our local newspaper this morning, we thought to give it a try. And are we glad we did!
This recipe is one of the best things The Hungry Wife has made thus far. It has all the creamy deliciousness of an alfredo cheese sauce, mixed with the semi-bitter greens, sweetness of the bell peppers, little bit of heat from the crushed red pepper, and of course, the salty, smoky taste of yummy crispy bacon! Everything is better with bacon.
Collard, turnip, mustard – The Hungry Wife can take about any leafy green vegetable and make it sing. Greens are rich iron and good for you, but many people love them simply for their taste. If you can eat spinach, you’ll love all the other greens. If you have never tried greens before this is your chance. Creamy Pasta and Greens is pretty simple to make, and the best to eat. Maybe not the most healthy recipe, but without a doubt, the most tasty and comforting.
