  • ½ head bok choy, chopped

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 2 ½ ounces butter

  • 3 slices bacon, cut into thin strips

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 2 cups water

  • 1 pinch dried basil

  • 8 ounces dry fettuccine pasta

  • 2 tablespoons milk, or more to taste

  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons milk


  1. Combine bok choy and salt in a bowl and rub leaves with salt.

  2. Melt 1 1/2 ounces butter in a pot over medium heat. Add bacon and garlic and cook until garlic has softened and bacon is crisp, about 3 minutes. Add bok choy, cover pot, and cook until leaves have softened, about 3 minutes. Add water, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Season with basil and remaining butter.

  3. Meanwhile, fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Cook fettuccine at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and keep warm.

  4. Drain half the liquid from the pot with the bok choy and transfer remaining contents to a skillet over medium-high heat. Season with pepper and add milk. Mix in cooked fettuccine. Cook and stir for 1 minute.
