#2.  On the side, prepare cabbage by cutting it in little pieces and soaking in cold water.

#3.  Once ingredients in #1 are soft, then remove half the beans and mash all the remaining ingredients in pot.

#4.  Bring the mish mash to a boil again, and now add the collard/cabbage greens; let it cook for a few minutes more on low, and then add the Savoy cabbage, precooked pasta, salt, pepper and more oil if you like, and cook it all for about 8 minutes.

#5.  Add the beans right before serving so they don’t soften too much.

#7.  Freeze the left over’s in freezable containers, man, enjoy it all again some other day!!
