    Anne Sainz's Note:

    This is one of my favorite pasta dishes. It was adapted from a recipe in "Wild About Greens" by Nava Atlas. I made some changes to be more in line with a Nutritarian eating style. If you don't have pine nuts, sliced almonds or sunflower seeds will work as well. You can also substitute green olives if you don't have kalamata. When I freeze this, I omit the pasta and cook it fresh later.

      If desired, toast pine nuts in dry skillet. Stir constantly and watch carefully, they burn easily. Set aside.

      Coat large covered frying pan or dutch oven (at least 5 quarts) with oil and sauté garlic, pepper and mushrooms until soft, adding small amounts of water as needed to prevent sticking.
    5. 5
      Add as much kale as will fit in the pan and small amount of water if needed. Cover and cook until wilted and soft. Continue adding kale, stirring frequently, until it is all in the pan, adding water as needed to prevent sticking. Continue cooking until kale is tender.
