Whole-Wheat Spaghetti with Pears, Radicchio and Brown Butter
Recipe Type: Entree
Author: Johnson and Wales University 
Serves: 8
Serves: 2-3
Ingredients
  • 2 pounds whole-wheat spaghetti
  • 2 radicchio heads, cored and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 4 green Bartlett pears, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cups arugula
  • 2 cups Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated
  • 2/3 cup hazelnuts or pecans, chopped
Instructions
  1. In a large pot, boil water. Add spaghetti, and cook al dente (slightly starchy).
  2. Prepare radicchio and pears for cooking.
  3. Place a large saucepan over medium heat. Add butter, and cook for 3–4 minutes until it starts to brown lightly and becomes fragrant.
  4. Drain pasta when finished, but reserve a cup of pasta water. It can be used if pasta is getting dry, or as a sauce thickener.
  5. Add pasta to browned butter and coat well over low heat. Add radicchio and arugula; cook 1–2 minutes until wilted and well incorporated.
  6. Turn off heat and add sliced pears, stirring gently. Add pasta water if needed.
  7. Transfer to a bowl, and garnish with cheese and hazelnuts.
