Orecchiette with Mixed Greens and Goat Cheese

Cook Time: 10 min
Level: Easy
Yield: 1 serving (double, triple the recipe for company)


* 1 cup dried orecchiette pasta
* 2 cups Mediterranean-style mixed salad greens
* 2 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes (packed in olive oil), chopped
* 1 tablespoon goat cheese, crumbled
* 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan, plus more for garnish
* Pinch salt
* Pinch freshly ground black pepper


Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the
pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring
occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of
the water.

In medium bowl, mix the salad greens with the sun-dried tomatoes, goat
cheese, and Parmesan. Top with warm pasta and 1/2 cup of the reserved
pasta water. Toss to combine and wilt the greens. Season with a pinch
each of salt and pepper, or to taste. Garnish with additional
Parmesan, if desired, and serve.
