Cavolo Nero - recipe suggestions...and how to get rid of YUCKY APHIDS!

So I just bought a couple lovely bunches at the farmer's market. I'm grateful to have pesticide free food, however, when I brought it home to wash it, I noticed the leaves were infested. I'm not squeamish - I'll eat a few bugs don't mind the extra protein, however, I'm telling you - these were seriously INFESTED. One leaf had hundreds of bugs.

It sort of made me lose my apetite. I soaked it overnight and in the morning, saw thousands in the sink. Washing it 6-8 times, I got rid of most of it. So I must have wasted gallons of water to do this.

So: does anyone have suggestions of how to rid of these pesky aphids in the future, and 2) does anyone have foolproof recipe suggestions?

Thanks!
