Multi-Grain Pasta with Sicilian Salsa Verde, Savoy Cabbage, and Green Beans

From Bon Appétit, February 2008
Serves 4

1/2 14.5-ounce package multi-grain spaghetti or whole wheat pasta
3/4 cup coarsely chopped Italian parsley
6 tbsp. olive oil, divided
3 tbsp. drained capers
3 anchovy fillets
3 garlic cloves, chopped, divided
6 cups thinly sliced savoy cabbage
6 oz. green beans
1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan cheese, divided

Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to bite, stirring occasionally. Drain, reserving 1 cup pasta cooking liquid.

Meanwhile, puree parsley, 4 tablespoons oil, capers, anchovies, and 1/3 of chopped garlic in mini processor.
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add cabbage; sauté until wilted, about 3 minutes. Add green beans and remaining garlic; toss 1 minute. Add 3/4 cup cheese, pasta, and 2/3 cup pasta cooking liquid, then parsley mixture from processor. Toss until sauce coats pasta, adding more pasta cooking liquid if dry, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve, passing remaining 3/4 cup cheese separately.
