Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Braised Kale

Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Braised Kale
Serves: 4
In this dish, you can hardly taste the "green" in the kale. You could also but collard greens in instead if you are feeling adventurous.
  • 6 oz. spaghetti (whole wheat or regular)
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 bunch kale, thick stems removed and leaves torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 pints tomatoes (any size will do, but the big ones will need to be chopped)
  • ⅓ c. chopped roasted almonds
  • ¼ c. your favorite cheese for pasta
  1. Cook pasta as directed by the package.
  2. Reserve ¼ c. of the cooking water. Drain the pasta.
  3. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium high. Add the onion, garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Cook 4-5 minutes
  4. Add the kale, tossing frequently, for 2-3 minutes until it is tender and bright green. Add the tomatoes and cook until they soften, 1-2 minutes more.
  5. Add the kale mixture, almonds, cheese, and pasta water to the pasta and toss together.
