TexMex Pasta and Collard Greens Ingredients:

16 Ounces Penne Pasta
16 Ounces (8 Cups) Fresh Collard Greens
2 Tablespoon Fresh Minced Garlic
1 Cup Yogurt
2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Teaspoons Ground Cumin
1/2 Teaspoon Chili Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
1 – 2 Teaspoons Salt
1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese

TexMex Pasta And Collard Greens Instructions:

1. First thing to do, Cook the Pasta. Boil the Penne Pasta in a Pot of Water until the Pasta is Al Dente (Pasta that is still a little firm but Cooked, Not Mushy!) Drain Pasta when done cooking!

2. While the Pasta is Cooking, it’s a good time to Cook the Collard Greens. In a Saucepan with a Lid, add the Chopped Collard Greens with enough water to just cover the bottom of the Pan. Simmer covered on low for about 10 – 15 Minutes.
