In a heavy, wide-bottom sauté pan (such as-you guessed it, cast iron…) heat oil over medium heat. Sauté onions for 3 to 4 minutes, or until crisp-tender. Add greens and garlic and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Cook greens until they begin to wilt but are still bright green. Sprinkle vinegar over the surface of the greens.

Stir in bell pepper strips and cook for 1 minute more. Stir in pasta, sausage, beans and basil leaves. Gently heat through.

Serve garnished with grated Parmesan cheese.
