Penne with White Beans and Kale

A staple, go-to recipe in the Knitchen.  I was buying groceries last night with only the Pizza Bianca on my mind and realized that if I did not buy Monday’s groceries that would be five trips to Whole Foods in about three days.  Not allowed.  I can buy all these ingredients without even thinking about it.

The recipe:

  • 1 lb. Penne (I use whole wheat when I am feeling healthy)
  • Two bunches kale: center stalk removed, rinsed, torn into big chunks
  • 6 small cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1-2 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 2 cans white beans
  • Parmesan

While pasta is cooking, sautee the garlic and red pepper flakes in olive oil.  Add kale and toss to coat kale in oil.  Add white wine and cover.  When green are wilted turn heat to low and add white beans.  Mix with cooked pasta and add parmesan.
