Mushroom & Kale Pasta

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Ezri_B

I have been trying to include more kale into our diet, but I didn't have many recipes. I had a bit of chorizo in the fridge and some leftover mushrooms and "winged" it. My boys (9, 10, & 13) loved it so much, I realized I'd better write it down so I don't forget. I used portabello mushrooms and penne pasta. Next time I may add some cannelini beans for fun.

This was really good. It was quite simple. I had a hard time finding the chorizo links, so I tried it with the loose chorizo, and I didn't like it. I then found the links and tried it again and I LOVE it. I made it exactly as listed, but I added some leeks too. Perfection. All of my boys and my hubby loved it!
