Cheesy Kale and Sausage Pasta
2 cups penne or rotini pasta, or about 6 oz.
1 tsp oil
3 oz kale (if you don't have a scale to measure, use about half of a 5 oz bag from Glory Garden)
2 T. butter
1/2 chopped onions
1 garlic clove
2 T. flour
2 cups milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
6 oz cooked ground beef sausage
1 cup grated cheese
Cook pasta according to package directions.
Wash, dry, and de-stem the kale. Tear or chop into small 1" pieces. Heat 1 tsp oil in a skillet. Saute the greens until reduced in size and tender. Place in a dish and set aside.
In the same skillet, heat 2 T. butter and saute the onions until golden and tender. Add the garlic clove and saute briefly until fragrant. Add the flour and cook for for a minute or two. Add the milk gradually, stirring out any lumps. When thickened, add the salt, pepper, kale, sausage, cooked pasta, and cheese. Mix and heat through.
