What’s For Dinner: Sausage and Kale Pasta
This is a quick and easy dinner recipe that is hearty for the colder months. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
1 package fresh rotini (any short pasta will do; I prefer fresh because it cooks faster)
1 tbsp butter
1 medium onion, chopped
1 package sausage, casings removed (usually comes with 4 sausages)
1 bunch kale, roughly chopped
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
salt, to taste
red pepper flakes, to taste
Start by melting the butter in the pan and sauteing the onions. After a few minutes when the onions begin to get soft, add the sausage meat to the pan (I use a potato masher to separate the meat). At this point turn on the water for the pasta and make sure you season the water with salt. Once the sausage is fully cooked, add the kale and chicken broth, then cover the pan to let the kale cook.
When the pasta is cooked, drain it from the water and add the pasta to the pan with the sausage and kale, then mix together. Add salt to taste and red pepper flakes, depending on your family’s preferences. After the pasta is mixed together, you can determine if you want to add more broth or butter to the pan to make sure the pasta is coated evenly. Then serve!
