How to make it

  • Heat olive oil in large soup pot on med high heat
  • when hot, add garlic and red pepper flakes
  • cook 1-2 mins; do not let garlic burn!
  • add broth/stock, bring to boil
  • When boiling, add pasta (sometimes I add extra)
  • Cook pasta to package directions, usually 8-10 mins - to al dente
  • When done, stir in bag of greens. (make sure they were washed first!)
  • When wilted, spoon into bowls.
  • Squeeze lemon to taste
  • Add black pepper to taste
  • If you used low-sodium broth you may need to add a bit of salt to taste
  • Whoops! Forgot to say that if you want to up the heartiness/protein quotient of this soup, you can add a can of beans to it (I prefer Cannelini) and stir in til warm. Do this before adding the greens so they don't get too soggy (the greens).
  • Serve with warm, crusty bread
