Cooking with Kay Cover

Hello, lovely people!

I’m back at it again with my second installment of Cooking with Kay, and today I’m making a Kale and Garlic Pasta that I found on Love and Olive Oil.  I know that the recipe calls for spinach, but because I only had kale on hand and they react the same to cooking, I thought the substitution would be alright. Kale seems to be all the rage right now, so I decided to give the healthy vegetable a go and see if it’s worth all of the hype!

Here we go!

Once again, I gathered all of my ingredients…

Instead of using regular pasta, I opted for whole wheat as a healthier option for the same amount of flavor…

When the pasta finished cooking, I took a large sauce pan and began sautéing all of my spices and seasonings…

Then, I added three handfuls of chopped kale to the same pan. I forgot to take a picture of it, but once the kale had started welting (after about 3 minutes), I added my whole wheat pasta to the sauce pan and combined all of the ingredients…

Here’s the end result with some shredded parmesan cheese sprinkled on top! Overall, the pasta was very good! I was a little heavy-handed with the crushed red pepper, so the dish had a nice spice to it that really elevated its flavor profile. One a scale of one to ten, I’d give this recipe a 7. The pasta was good as well as all of the seasonings, but I’ve found that I’m really not that big of a fan of kale haha.

Do you have any other recipes you think I should try? Have you had kale before? Did you like it? Let me know in the comments!
