Salad Spaghetti

I would say that this spaghetti dish is the best of both
words. A mixture of greens and carbs. A win, win for
for us all. You will be amazed how good this is.

Salad Spaghetti

1 pound of spaghetti
4 tablespoons of olive oil
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
1 small head of frisee lettuce
2 cups baby arugula
1/2 small head of radicchio, shredded
1 lemon, juiced
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, grated
salt and pepper
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Cook pasta in salted water, cook until done. Reserve
one cup of pasta water (for the sauce).
While the pasta is cooking, Heat olive oil in a large
skillet. Add the garlic and thyme to pan and cook for
5 minutes. Increase heat to med-high and add reserved
pasta water and add cooked pasta.
Add the frisee, arugula, radicchio, lemon juice, Parmesan
and a good sprinkle of salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.
Toss in pan until the veggies have wilted a bit.
Sprinkle with parsley and more parm.
