This is my favorite way to eat kale, which is my favorite vegetable. I make this at least once a week.. and you should too, as Kale is one of the most nutritious veggies around.
Pasta with kale, tomatoes and parmesean
Serves 3 (or more)
1-2 bunches kale, stems removed and torn into medium sized pieces
1 medium heirloom tomato, diced (non-heirloom tomatoes are OK)
2 cloves garlic
2 Tb Olive oil
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Salt and Pepper
1/2 lb Pasta (linguni or penne)
1) Prepare pasta according to package directions.
2) While the pasta is cooking, heat olive oil and garlic in a medium sized saucepan over medium heat. Rinse the kale under cold water in a colander. Shake off excess water and place in pan. Add salt and pepper to taste and cover pan so the kale can wilt.
3) Once the kale is cooked down, add the diced tomato and cook for a minute. Add Parmesan, more olive oil (if desired) and cooked pasta.
