Pasta, Kale, and the Kids Liked It.

Two tricks to Kale:
1. Slice it into thin strips, disguising it as an herb.
2. Serve it so there's more carb than Kale.

I cooked mine in the pot after the pasta was drained, in olive oil and then a little water to wilt it, then I threw it on top of the pasta in the strainer and mixed it in.  If you want pasta, you'll be eating kale.

At the table to assemble themselves:

  • Pasta with Kale (The pasta is Campanelle instead of Penne, and it was just right.)
  • Cannellini Beans (I substituted white navy beans, and warmed them in the microwave)
  • Parmesan Cheese and That Fancy Olive Oil with Herbs we were given for Christmas.
  • (then leftover ham for the meat eaters, deliberately sweet to counteract the kale, since meat eaters are wimps.)


  • bread
  • crudites
  • milk.
