Kale and Pasta Recipe

October 6, 2016

Hello friends.  I've been on a kale kick lately, and I have been using this vegetable in many of the different dishes I make.

Today I'm sharing with you this easy to make kale and pasta recipe.

I enjoy cooking pasta when I run out of ideas for what to make for dinner.  I usually have the pasta and kale on hand, and you can find me making this dish about once a week.

I hope you enjoy this healthy pasta dish as much as my family does!!  :)

In the first photo below you can see the kale sauteing in the pot.  

In the second photo you can see the kale and pasta all mixed together and done cooking.  

This is such an easy, healthy, and delicious meal to make for dinner and I'm sure everyone will just love it!  :)
