I am bringing Kale & Sausage Pasta to the dinner table today; this dish is super easy and you are ready to get dinner on the table within 20 minutes. Really, this dish is that easy and full of flavor.  It is even quicker if you use pre-washed already chopped Kale.

Easy Kale & Sausage Pasta
  • 1 box of your favorite pasta
  • 1 lb bulk sausage {I prefer sage sausage}
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 C of chopped Lacinato Kale
  • Juice & zest of 1/2 untreated lemon
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Parmigiano Reggiano {optional}
  1. Bring water in a pot to a boil and cook pasta according to directions.  While pasta is cooking,
  2. Fry up the bulk sausage in a large pan until crumbly, add garlic until fragrant
  3. Add Kale to the pan and stir it frequently while sautéing until it is bright green in color. 
  4. Add lemon juice, zest, salt and pepper to taste
  5. Reserve 1/4 C of cooking water, then drain pasta
  6. Add pasta to the pan together with the reserved cooking water and mix pasta thoroughly with the Kale/sausage mixture.
  7. If using mix in Parmesiano Regiano.
  8. Transfer pasta to a serving dish.
