Kale Pasta

Practically Made {Kale Pasta}
Today is the third day I’m posting about a kale recipe and I’m happy to announce that one bunch of kale got me through three healthy and hearty meals.
Day 3 is a hearty kale pasta recipe I whipped up with my remaining kale. I figured another broth based recipe would not go over well with Tony so I gave the man some carbs while still adding to our daily veggie intake. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

The goal is to get the kale nice and crispy but not burnt! Stir periodically for about 5-7 minutes then add bread crumbs and combine until well coated. Remove from heat.

At this point you should be ready to drain your pasta but be sure to keep 1/3 cup of pasta water to help thicken our kale sauce.
