If you’re pressed for time on a weeknight and need dinner fast, be sure to keep this recipe handy. This one-pot wonder is a total lifesaver when things start to get hectic—it’s ready in just 20 minutes, and cleanup is a breeze, too. It’s hard to beat how tasty ham, kale, and pasta can be when served together in a garlicky, buttery sauce.

8 - ounces dried orecchiette pasta
6 - ounces cooked ham, diced (1 cup)
4 - cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
2 - tablespoons butter
1 - teaspoon blackened seasoning
8 - ounces torn mustard greens or kale leaves (8 cups)
1/2 - cup shaved Asiago or Parmesan cheese (about 2 oz.)

In a 4-quart Dutch oven cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup of the pasta water. Set pasta aside.
In the same Dutch oven cook ham over medium-high heat until browned, about 3 minutes. Add garlic, butter, and blackened seasoning; cook and stir 2 minutes more. Stir in pasta, reserved pasta water, greens, and cheese. Cook and stir until heated through and greens wilt.
