From time to time, we have those days when we forget to plan for dinner and decide just to wing it. I created this dish from just that experience. I prefer collard greens frozen instead of cooking them from scratch. They taste better and save me some work at dinner time. So, I decided to pull all my veggies from the freezer today. Here's how I made this Sausage, Collard Greens, and Peppers Pasta Recipe. I hope you enjoy it.
Sausage, Collard Greens, and Peppers Pasta Recipe
6 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
4 cups Egg Noodles
One garlic clove
14 oz mild pork sausage remove casing (chicken or turkey sausage works too)
1 Tbsp parsley (dried)
8 oz multi-color frozen peppers (blend pack)
4 cups Collard greens (Frozen and cut)
2 Tbsp Butter or Alternative butter spread
Boil chicken broth and water then add egg noodles as per package. Reserve ½ cup of broth/water mixture before draining the pasta.
In a large skillet, add 1 tbsp butter and then add garlic until fragrant.
Add the sausage and break the sausage mixture into small pieces until lightly brown.
Add the frozen peppers until cooked through but not browned about 3 minutes.
Then add the frozen collard greens until cooked through but not browned about 3 minutes.
Cook for another few minutes until the liquid disappears.
Add the drained pasta and ½ cup of broth/water reserve and mix. Let cook for 3 minutes.
Sprinkle Pecorino Romano cheese on top and serve warm.
