Before we made this recipe, we thought the ingredients seemed too simple and the flavor might be too bland. But it actually came out surprisingly delicious. And yes, only these a few ingredients made this pasta very tasty and flavorful; also a great way to use up the fresh beet greens that we just got the other day. A keeper!
