Don’t think of this as a pasta dish with a heavy sauce. Instead, it's like a warm pasta salad, the better to let the taste of the ramps shine through.

Ingredients

cooking spray

1 spray(s)

fresh ramps

12 medium, white bits and greens separated, both thinly slice

minced garlic

2 tsp

anchovies canned in oil drained

2 item(s), minced

capers

2 tsp, drained, rinsed and minced

uncooked whole wheat pasta

8 oz, (ziti), cooked and drained

fat-free reduced sodium chicken broth

¼ cup(s)

balsamic vinegar

2 Tbsp

Instructions

  1. 1. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; set over medium heat. Add white bits of ramps; cook 3 minutes, stirring often, until softened.
  2. 2. Add garlic, anchovies and capers. Cook 1 minute, stirring often. Stir in cooked pasta and ramps’ greens. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly, until wilted.
