Recipe

Two kale recipes in one week? Please don’t jump ship. This is just what happens when I buy a huge amount of kale because it is finally on sale. However this simple and quick pasta dish will work with any veggie you like. It starts with some olive oil and garlic, gets some great flavor from roasted red peppers and veggies, then finishes off with some white beans for protein and lemon juice to round out the flavors. Topped with some Parmesan cheese and black pepper, it makes a terrific and speedy dinner.
