Another easy dinner recipe I make all the time! Not only is this recipe quick to make, it also is a 1 skillet recipe, which as someone who HATES doing dishes is pretty awesome. This recipe is a modified one from Hunt’s website (thanks, ConAgra!). The original recipe calls for spinach instead of kale. I’ve had it both ways and personally prefer kale, which is healthier and adds a broccoli-like flavor and more texture.

Italian Sausage & Kale Pasta

Ingredients:

1 lb ground italian sausage (you can use turkey sausage if want to cut calories)

1 can Hunt’s tomato sauce (8 oz one, I typically use the basil, oregano, & garlic one)

1 can Hunt’s diced tomatoes (14.5 oz, again can use a flavored one or plain)

8 oz (or 3.5 cups) dry farfalle pasta (or penne)

1-1/4 cup water

About 3 handfuls of kale or spinach

Parmesan cheese or mozzarella (OPTIONAL)

Directions:

  1. Use a large skillet or pan (you will add everything to it). Brown italian sausage first.
  2. Once it is cooked, add in tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, pasta, and water to the pan. Bring to a boil and then reduce it to a simmer. Cover and cook for 15 minutes.
  3. After 15 minutes, add in the kale or spinach and cook for another 1-3 minutes (depending on how wilted you like it–I like my kale to have a bit of a crunch).
  4. Garnish with cheese if you want. It has enough flavor on its own that it isn’t necessary.
  5. Enjoy!
