Collards with Pasta and I Luv MDNA

Hi everyone. It would be timely for me to discuss the Super Bowl but I don’t really care for or understand Football so can’t.

What I will say is that Madonna rocked my world in that ca-razy half time show. Is she really 53?

I was a little disappointed to see her being slammed on the internet, with comments like she is too old to be up there.
Why shouldn’t someone continue to do what they love, at any age? She is a hard working performer who did an impressive job and I tip my hat to her.

Sometimes we think too much about what others will say and think and it keeps us from doing what we love or aspire to do. Please don’t let the haters keep you down. Don’t think about it, just do it!!

In closing, don’t even think too much about dinner. If we just look in our fridge and pantry, we may have enough ingredients to put together a quick, simple and healthy meal in minutes. Try this one for a last minute dinner or lunch and tell the naysayers you can’t hear them, you’re too busy cooking 🙂
P.S.Who was that little tight rope cupid??? Cool!

Collards with Pasta and Pistachios:

1/2 cup washed, chopped and sauteed collards (or any other leafy green you may have in the house like Kale or spinach)
1 1/2 cups cooked whole wheat pasta
1 TBS whole or part skim ricotta
1 TBS pistachios
drizzle olive oil
salt, pepper, crushed red pepper

Wash and sautee the collard greens and set aside.
Boil pasta until tender
Mix pasta and collard greens , top with a TBS ricotta, the pistachios , a drizzle of olive oil and some salt, pepper and crushed red pepper to taste. Yum!

  1. How many would this serve? Two people? It looks so good and I have everything in my pantry and frig. I am going to try it with walnuts and spinach. Thanks!

  2. This was easy and fabulous dinner and a big hit with the whole family. My adaptations are: sauteed spinach w/ grilled walnuts (plus the pasta and part skim ricotta. The dried red pepper flakes add a zing ) This is a keeper. Thanks!
