Greens: I had swiss chard and bok choy, sounds odd right?  It was amazing.
2 boxes of Linguini
Olive Oil
5 cloves garlic peeled and chopped
1 big pinch red pepper flakes
about a cup of Romano cheese (or whatever grated cheese you have)


Wash, drain and chop your greens, set aside. Put up the water for pasta and salt liberally.  Prepare pasta according to package directions.
Meanwhile, heat a large pan on med/high heat.  When it's hot, add enough oil to liberally coat the pan.  Add the garlic and saute for a minute, until you can really smell it. Add the pepper flakes and then the greens.  Allow to sweat down, not disturbing them too often, but tossing occasionally so that every leaf gets wilted.

Drain your pasta, but reserve a cup or two of pasta water - you may not need any, but better safe than sorry.

Put the pasta pot back on the stove and pour the greens/garlic mixture into the pasta pot. Put on a low heat and add the pasta back in.  Toss to combine.  If it seems really dry, add some of the pasta water, a little at a time.  I found that the greens gave off enough water that I didn't need any, but use your own judgement. Add the cheese and toss until the cheese gets a little creamy.  Serve immediately. Salt and pepper to taste.
