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)

12 oz. capellini
1 tsp. fresh thyme
1 tsp. fresh marjoram

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.

    Here in So-Flo, we like to hang out half naked, especially in the summer, which is why eating healthy is so important to keep that bod in shape. I know eating healthy can be so boring. I mean, I wanna look good and feel good, but I don't wanna give up taste. I just found a healthy new joint that's both delicious and has me seriously considering becoming a vegan.
