Tuscan Pasta

4 Servings, 15 Minutes


Ingredients:

1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1/2 cup Red Onion 2 cloves Garlic 1/4 cup Olive Tapenade 1/2 tsp Oregano 1 can Canned Whole Tomatoes 2 cups Sunripe Tuscan Kale 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed) 1 box Chickpea Pasta 1/2 cup Parmigiano Reggiano (optional)


Directions:

  1. Prepare a pot of boiling water to cook the chickpea pasta later on

  2. Pour olive oil into a medium saucepan and bring to medium-low heat. Add finely chopped red onion & minced garlic and sauté until translucent

  3. Stir tapenade and oregano into pan, mixing all ingredients together before adding the can of whole tomatoes. Bring to a simmer, gently breaking apart tomatoes using the back of a wooden spoon to form a sauce. Turn down to low heat and let flavours meld.

  4. Add pasta to boiling water from step 1, cooking until al-dente (approximately 10 minutes)

  5. While waiting for pasta to cook, add chopped kale & lemon to a pan. Bring to a medium-low heat, allowing the kale to soften and slightly wilt. Once pasta is strained, add it to the kale.

  6. Stir sauce into pasta & kale mixture, tossing all ingredients together.

  7. Plate the pasta and top with freshly shaved Parmesan cheese if desired. Enjoy!
