This is yum!

I haven’t had pasta in a long time, but this one was perfect! Bright green pasta for a cold winter day!

Kale and Goat Cheese Whole Weat Winter Pasta:

-Small bunch of baby Kale (or full sized kale)

-3 ounces of goat cheese


-2 gloves garlic

-1/3 cup olive oil

-salt and pepper

-whole weat pasta (I used Organic from whole foods I bought a while ago!)

Bring to boil a large pot of water (you will use this latter for the pasta too), when the water is boiling, add the kale leaves and cook for three minutes, they will have wilted down by then. Take the leaves out, and keep the water in the pot. Add the pasta and cook as you would usually (just reusing water here!). Combine the leaves, with the goat cheese, the olive oil, the salt and pepper, and the thyme leaves in the vitamix or food processor, blend to make the sauce!  When the pasta is ready, drain and pour the sauce on top! Serve hot!

Enjoy your baby greens 🙂
