The Chef: Joshua Viera
The Restaurant: Pipalato in Pembroke Pines
The Dish: Summer Pasta Alle Erbe

Ingredients:
6 oz. quick-cooking leafy greens (arugula, spinach, basil)

1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp. salt
pinch of red pepper flakes (to taste)
1/4 cup starchy water (from pasta)
12 oz. capellini
1 tsp. fresh thyme
1 tsp. fresh marjoram
8 cherry tomatoes (quartered)

Method of Preparation:
-Start by removing stems and coarsely tearing the arugula, spinach and basil into bite-sized pieces. (Two to one arugula and spinach to basil)

- Pull fresh thyme and marjoram off the stems. Mix with the greens.

- Put Capellini pasta into salted water and bring to a boil.

- Add olive oil to a pan and bring up the heat. Add tomato paste and stir. Add garlic and sauté for a minute or so more. Add kosher salt, crushed red pepper and quartered cherry tomatoes. Sauté for a few minutes, add the marjoram and thyme, then a splash of salty water. Sauté for two more minutes.

- Add pasta to the pan, then a handful of the greens and a little more water. Add the rest of the herbs a little at a time, stirring until they wilt. Finish with some olive oil.

    Some people are good at putting out fires. They're called firefighters. Others are good at baking pies. They're called bakers. But one man is excellent at both. He's a crusty firefighter, and we mean that in a really good way.
