Gina's Turnip Greens. The Neelys Down Home with the Neelys NY-0304

Turnip greens turned up in my CSA box last week, and I wasn’t sure what to do with them. This recipe was the answer -- tender sautéed greens in a tangy and spicy sauce, with just a bit of crunch. These greens are low in calories, high in vitamins A, C, K and folate and contain the antioxidant lutein. For this recipe, I cut back a little on the pecans, but even if you keep them all, there are only 170 calories and 11 grams of healthy fat per serving.

Spotlight Recipe: Pasta Puttanesca

I got spoiled this summer, getting to come home and have access to fresh ingredients, a full kitchen and, of course, free time to cook. However, going back to school doesn’t mean we college students can’t still enjoy a good, healthy meal! Pasta is a good ol’ standby, but this year, ditch the buttered noodles or Ramen packets and try this easy dish – it’s sure to earn you an A from your roommates or friends. Make it in bulk you and eat for a few days. Capers, anchovy paste and arugula might not be usual pantry staples, but you shouldn’t have trouble finding them at the local supermarket.
