2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the penne; prep the black-eyed peas

Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Rinse the black-eyed peas.
Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil. Add the penne and cook until just tender, 8 to 12 minutes. Drain the penne, return the pasta to the pot, and stir in the black-eyed peas.
While the water heats and the penne cooks, prepare the vegetables.


Prep and roast the vegetables

  • Cut away the core from the radicchio; thinly slice the radicchio.
  • Peel and thinly slice the shallots.
  • Cut the mushrooms into quarters.
  • Strip the rosemary leaves from the stems; finely chop enough leaves to measure ½ teaspoon.
On a sheet pan, toss the radicchio, shallots, mushrooms, and rosemary with 2 to 3 teaspoons oil; season with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer. Roast, stirring once halfway through, until the vegetables soften and the mushrooms brown slightly, 5 to 7 minutes.
While the vegetables roast, prepare the garnishes and the balsamic-fig sauce.


Prep the garnishes

  • Coarsely chop the walnuts.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Cut the lemon into wedges.


Make the balsamic-fig sauce; finish the pasta

  • Trim the stems from the dried figs; coarsely chop the figs.
In a large frying pan, bring the vegetable broth and balsamic vinegar to a boil. Reduce to a vigorous simmer and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the sauce starts to thicken, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the figs, season with salt and pepper, and cook until the figs are softened, 1 to 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat, add the penne, black-eyed peas, and roasted vegetables, and toss to coat; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the penne mixture to individual bowls and garnish with the walnuts and parsley. Serve with the lemon wedges.
