This Angel Hair pasta dish uses Chinese leafy Choy Sum, sweetness of Mirin and garlic infused oil.
This angel hair pasta is inspired by Agli Olio, using a lot of finely sliced garlic. I just happen to have a bunch of Greens, I thought they were Boc Choy but upon further research I learned that they were called Choy Sum. Choy sum is a transliteration of the Cantonese name, which can be literally translated as "heart of the vegetable". It is also known as Chinese flowering cabbage.
The combination of garlic, olive, lemons and Mirin is what elevates this dish. Together with saute'd Choy Sum and you have a exquisite pasta dish.
feel free to use whatever greens you have on n hand like kale. Kale sautés really good with garlic. If you got chard that will work too. It’s all about being comfortable in being open to using different types of vegetables out there. Maybe you use white wine instead of mirin. Maybe too it with vegan Parmesan. Feel free to create.
