4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tblspn refined coconut oil
3 tblspn Earth Balance vegan butter
sea salt to taste
1/2 tspn pepper
1/4 cup pine nuts
8 oz of whole wheat, quinoa or brown rice pasta (any shape you choose)
6 cups of chopped greens of your choice (I like to use kale, broccoli and zucchini)

Saute the garlic in the oil about 3 minutes, and then remove from heat. Stir in the butter and allow it to melt. Set aside.
Cook pasta as directed, and add the vegetables in for the last minute of cooking. Drain, but reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Return 1/2 cup water, pasta and veggies to pot, and add in the garlic butter. Mix in the pepper, pine nuts and salt to taste.
