Caramelized Cabbage with Whole-Wheat Penne and Provolone
Pasta comes in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, but generally speaking, it can be divided into two broad categories (short and strand) that are usually paired with specific sauces and toppings. Both types of pasta come in whole-wheat versions, which offer a great way to add some whole grains to your diet.
This pasta toss is inspired by a similar dish at Franny's restaurant in Brooklyn. The cabbage caramelizes in the pan and becomes just tender enough to bind with the pasta without losing its toothsomeness. Fresh red chile is a must for a pop of color and heat—don't skip it.
