Don't you just love one-pot meals -- especially when they cook up fast and are delicious?! This is a combination of Pasta Fagiole and "Greens and Beans" (the latter an upstate New York favorite). It can be made with a variety of different greens (I chose kale the first time around because that was most affordable), although I think that sharper greens are the better choice. The recipe appeared in our local supermarket's (Hannaford) bi-monthly magazine. It will look like you have way too much kale to possibly get this all to cook properly: never fear, just keep stirring!
