Rachael combines salami, ham, cheese + charred greens with short pasta for a colorful, fun and easy take on traditional antipasto.

Heat a large pot of water to boil for pasta.
Heat a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Season the halved greens with salt and pepper and spray with oil, then char in pan cut-side down, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from pan and reduce heat to medium. When greens are cool enough to touch, shred them and discard the core.
Add EVOO to pan, 3 turns, then add meats and render 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic, stir 1 minute, add the pickled vegetables, peppers and olives and combine. Add wine or vermouth and let it absorb. Add stock and reduce heat to low.
Cook pasta 1 minute less than package directions in salted water and reserve ½ cup cooking liquid. Drain pasta, add to antipasti mixture, then add the greens and cheeses and toss 1 minute more. Serve topped with parsley.
