Kale and Garlic Scallion Pasta

Quick and delicious Kale and Garlic Scallion Pasta (serves 4 or 5)

  • 3 Kale leaves chopped
  • 3 or 4 Garlic Scallions (whole plant can be used, slice from bulb to leaves)
  • olive oil and butter
  • 1/2 cup broth
  • 1 lb pasta (any kind) 
  • Salt and Pepper
Put water on for pasta and cook according to directions.  Meanwhile cook the kale in a pan, stirring on medium heat with about a tablespoon oil, and salt and pepper to taste.  After a few minutes the kale will look bright green from cooking, this is when you can add the garlic and cook a few minutes more.  Add the broth and a tablespoon of butter and simmer about 2 minutes more, then remove from the heat.  When the pasta is finished cooking, drain and toss with the kale and garlic and serve.  It is great with Parmesan cheese.   

With the garlic scallions you can remove the papery skin by peeling off one leaf. They come off very easily!
