Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil for the pasta. 

  • Heat a large skillet over medium; add the butter. When the butter foams, add the garlic and nuts. Stir until the garlic softens, about 2 minutes. 

  • Salt the boiling water, then add the pasta and cook about a minute less than the package directions. 

  • Meanwhile, add the sage to the sauce in the skillet. Cook over medium until the butter browns and the sage is starting to crisp and brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in the nutmeg and vinegar and remove from heat. 

  • Drain the pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Add the pasta, cooking water, greens, and 1/4 cup cheese to the sauce. Gently toss until the sauce coats the pasta and the greens wilt, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Serve the pasta with more cheese, for topping.
