A handful of ingredients creates the most extraordinary of flavours, in Matthew Fort’s recipe for pasta with turnip greens


1. Cook the orecchiette in a pan of boiling salted water, according to packet instructions, until al dente.

2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pan and fry the garlic and chilli flakes for 2-3 minutes. Then add the turnip greens and fry for a further 3-4 minutes, or until the turnip greens are tender and wilted. Season with sea salt.

3. Drain the orecchiette and add to the pan with the turnip greens, mixing well to coat. Spoon onto plates and serve with a little pecorino cheese.
