This main course pasta dish is perfect for those who want to eat lots of vegetables like turnip tops, cabbage or broccoli, but don’t enjoy them on their own. If you make a tasty pasta sauce with these vegetables and flavour them with some sausage meat, people who are not crazy about green vegetables will find that they can eat them in a "painless" way. In short: taste, colour and healthiness in an inexpensive pasta dish, perfect for everyday eating. Of course you can customize the recipe to your liking, turning it into a vegetarian sauce, or adjusting as you see fit the quantity of sausage relative to greens, or changing the shape pf pasta used. If you can’t find any turnip tops, you can easily replace them with other greens, broccoli or cauliflower. It will remain a tasty and very healthy dish. Not only that, if you can’t get hold of any fresh pasta, you can use dried, using plain fusilli, for example. The result will be equally flavourful. And, as we mentioned, if you are vegetarian, you can also remove the sausage completely and make it exclusively with fresh vegetables.
Fry the garlic clove in a little oil. Crumble the sausage meat and add to the pan. Pour in a little white wine and reduce. Remove the clove of garlic. Separately, blanched the greens in boiling water. After 5 minutes, drain and add them to the sausage meat mixture. Season with salt and pepper, chop the turnips slightly and stir with a wooden spoon so as to amalgamate everything. If you wish, add the chilli. Cook the pasta in the greens’ cooking water. Drain the pasta and add it to the sauce. Mix well, sprinkle lightly with parmesan and serve immediately.
