Kale and Onion Pasta

17 Nov

It’s been almost two weeks since I last posted. My apologies, I have been SWAMPED with school and work!

I’ve been wanting to cook with kale for a while now, since it is one of the most nutritious veggies around. I wasn’t really sure what kale would go well with, but I figured that onions and mozzarella is always a good choice when it comes to pasta. No surprise here. The pasta dish was absolutely delicious! I could not believe how creamy it tasted despite the fact that I didn’t even add any cream!

It’s a quick, easy, and healthy meal. Just because of this dish, I love kale so much now.


3 tbs olive oil

1 tbs butter

1 stalk of kale, rinsed and cut

1/2 small onion, diced

1/4 cup chicken stock

salt and pepper

1 pinch of nutmeg

red pepper flakes (optional)

1/2 cup mozzarella, cubed or shredded

1/2 pound pasta, whole wheat. Cook based on directions.


1. In medium heat, add olive oil and butter in pot. Stir until mixed and butter is melted, and add onions. Cook for about five minutes, until union turns translucent.

2. Add in the kale to the mix, add in chicken stock, salt and pepper, nutmeg and red pepper flakes (optional) and stir. Cover the pot for about 3 minutes. Keep stirring until kale is cooked down. About 3-5 minutes.

3. Stir in the mozzarella cheese as well as cooked pasta.

SO simple, guilt-free, and fast! This absolutely delicious sauce with the nutty whole wheat pasta cannot go any better.
