Creamy Tomato and Kale Linguine
This pasta dish is mouth watering delicious. The little tomatoes and kale are sautéed with garlic and olive oil. And the noodles are tossed in a balsamic vinaigrette, and the goat cheese gives them that creamy consistency. Finished with crispy kale and a dusting of Parmesan cheese. One taste and you’ll be begging for more. I know I was….
It’s one of those meals you’ll want to make with that box of noodles, that’s been hanging around for awhile. And if you’ve recently made some kale chips, you’ll be ready to top this dish. And if you’ve already ate them all, well it’s your excuse to make some more.
And this would be a wonderful garden to table meal. Think of making this dish in the summer, and all the tomatoes and kale you could use. We love growing tomatoes in the garden and kale of course. Mmm I can’t wait!!
Serving size 2-3, if your cooking for a family just double the recipe. Easily done in a larger pan.
