This recipe was delicious!! The bitterness of the kale worked well with the sweetness of the tomato sauce! Thanks for sharing!
Followed the recipe exactly except I snuck in 1/2c pureed summer squash and 1/2c pureed broccoli. Nobody noticed and they got some extra vegetables in a delicious way.
I just wanted to comment because I made so many changes to your recipe that I feel like I can't really give you stars, but I loved the dish all the same. I used turkey bacon in place of sausage, a combination of fire-roasted diced tomatoes and homemade tomato sauce, 4 garlic cloves and some hot cherry peppers in addition to the onion, and 1 bunch of kale, along with bow tie pasta. I added some of the cooking liquid from the pasta to loosen the sauce a bit. I thought it was a great, simple dish, and everybody just loved it. Next time I make it, I will make sure I have sausage on hand so I can try it the way the recipe truly states. Thanks!
I agree, the finished product is awesome. I was a bit unsure about the "2 bunches of kale." How big is a bunch? My saute pan was overflowing. But it cooked down to a manageable size and went perfectly with the huge amount of pasta. I used three 8 oz. cans of tomato sauce. I also used hot turkey sausage. Very nice recipe. Thanks!
PhPh, this is a great recipe. We joined a CSA and now have to find ways to eat kale, broccoli raab and the like. This is a keeper - will definitely make again! We used bow-ties and hot sausage and it was awesome. Thanks for sharing!
