Ingredients

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 3/4 pound linguine
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Greens from 2 bunches beets (about 1/2 pound), rinsed, tough stems removed, and coarsely chopped (or a mixture of beet greens, chard &/or kale)
  • 1/3 cup toasted hazelnuts, chopped
  • 2 ounces blue cheese, such as Gorgonzola, crumbled

Directions

  1. Step 1

    In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water; drain pasta.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add garlic, and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add greens and cook, stirring, until tender, 2 minutes. Add pasta and hazelnuts, toss to combine. Add cheese and toss, adding enough pasta water to create a creamy sauce, 1 minute. Drizzle with oil and serve.
