How to Make Fresh Grated Pasta


  • 3/4 pound penne
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup jarred roasted red peppers—drained and cut into strips
  • 2 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 small head escarole, inner leaves only, chopped (4 cups)
  • One 6-ounce can Italian tuna in olive oil, drained and flaked
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the penne until al dente. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking water.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the red peppers, garlic and crushed red pepper and cook over moderately high heat until the peppers are softened, 6 minutes. Add the escarole and cook, stirring, until wilted, 3 minutes. Stir in the tuna.

  3. Add the pasta, the reserved cooking water and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan to the skillet and cook, tossing, until the liquid is nearly absorbed, 2 minutes. Transfer to bowls, sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup of Parmesan and serve.
