Savoy Cabbage & Spinach Pasta With Walnuts

I usually cook with plenty of zucchini or mushrooms. In the same way I actually eat a huge bowl of salad a day by default. But having no variation pretty much sucks in the long run so once in a while I decide to add different, “fancier” ingredients to my daily diet. So – feeling adventurous – for this dish I included savoy cabbage, which I honestly have never used in any of my other recipes before.  Since I love (and am) nuts anyway (haha) I also added walnuts to this creation and voilá – the savoy cabbage and spinach pasta with walnuts was invented!

Savoy Cabbage & Spinach Pasta With Walnuts


You need (for 2 servings)

  • 220 g spaghetti
  • Savoy cabbage – a quarter
  • about 100 g of spinach – frozen or fresh
  • Handful of walnuts
  • Shot of white wine (sweet)
  • 100 ml soy cream (also delicious with normal cream or cream cheese!)
  • 1 onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • Herbal mix – frozen (of course you can also use fresh herbs! I love the frozen herbs as they are always at hand.)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • chili

Preparation (about 15 minutes)

  • First, cook spaghetti in plenty of salted water.
  • Then peel the onion and garlic and cut into small pieces.
  • Halve savoy cabbage first and then quarter it again. If the outer leaves are a bit …”aesthetically challenged”, remove them and wash savoy cabbage.
  • Now remove the stalk and cut the leaves into small pieces.
  • If you use frozen spinach, defrost it first. (I always do it in the microwave, otherwise take it out of the freezer at least 2 hours before.)
  • First, fry walnuts in a pan.
  • Once you have reached the desired degree of roast, take it out of the pan and set it aside.
  • Now add some olive oil to the pan and fry the onion and garlic over high heat.
  • Deglaze with white wine.
  • Now add the savoy cabbage and the spinach.
  • After about 2 minutes you add the finished pasta.
  • Mix everything and stir in the soy cream.
  • Refine with herbs and season with salt, pepper and chili if you like.
  • Finally, add the walnuts to the pan and mix with the pasta.
    Good Appetite!

Damn, savoy cabbage is actually pretty damn nice!
