Here's hat to do if you want to get kids on board w/ chicory greens—pair them with cheesy pasta!
Because I grew up on boxed pastas and have only found a love for vegetables in the past five years, I used to make some pretty wacky dishes during my transition to farming. Those who love veggies may think that dish is a disgrace to the vegetables in it, and those who don’t know vegetables well yet tend to be put off by the veggies that are in it. So if you happen to be in a middle ground like I was, try out sautéing your chicory greens and mixing it in with cheesy pasta! It’s a great way to fall for chicories.
Prepare packaged pasta per box instructions.
Sauté shallot, garlic, and radicchio with olive oil and salt.
Mix veggiesd together with prepared pasta. Serve.
