Not gonna lie, I don't like kale. It's got a really strong flavor, a pretty stiff texture, and I've heard that it's the healthiest of any green vegetables on the planet--bad news all around.
Usually, in an effort to make it go away, I blend kale into green smoothies, but this week, I found a very successful alternative for kale masking--sausage.
I love sausage. All kinds. Kielbasa, bratwurst, salami, breakfast links--I could go on and on. Actually, I could probably write a love song all about it. But I won't. Instead, I'll show you this picture:
Bow tie pasta with olive oil, basil, kale, and Italian sausage.
There's no recipe--just put those four ingredients together in a frying pan, and learn how it tastes to live life to the fullest.
Fifty years from now, when we're all keeling over from acute angina, at least we can die knowing that we helped kale achieve its highest potential.
