Recipe Type: Main
 
Bright and spicy flavors fill a simple pasta dish wrapped together with creamy labneh and parmesan cheese.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup dry pasta (I used quinoa, but you can go for the normal gluten-rich kind if you like!)
  • 4 anchovies (the grey kind, not the fancy ones)
  • 1 bunch radish tops, sliced into ribbons
  • 4 radishes, sliced
  • zest of one lemon
  • ¼-1/3 cup labneh
  • olive oil (for cooking)
  • extra virgin olive oil (for finishing)
  • freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • parmesan, to taste
Instructions
  1. Boil a large pot of salted water. Wash and prepare mise en place for all ingredients.
  2. Heat a large pan and add a small amount of olive oil. (Better yet, if your anchovies were packed in oil, use that oil.)
  3. Once oil is warmed, add anchovies. Simultaneously add pasta to boiling water. (Set a timer for your pasta for 1 minute less than the box says it should cook).
  4. Once anchovies are heated through, break up into a paste. Add sliced radishes to pan and sauté.
  5. Once radishes are slightly translucent, add radish tops and lemon zest to pan. Sauté until radish tops are wilted.
  6. Remove pasta whenever necessary. Drain, retaining a small amount of pasta water. Drizzle with EVOO to prevent pasta from sticking.
  7. Once greens are wilted, add labneh to pan to create a sort of cream sauce. Once warmed through, add your pasta to the vegetables/sauce. Mix well, adding reserved pasta water as needed.
  8. Plate your pasta and finished with freshly cracked pepper and parmesan, to taste.
