Here's a nutritious and delicious dinner for you to try this weekend. It has one of our favorite words in it - "Angel"! You can find this recipe and 100s of others on our Pinterest page.
Angel Hair Pasta with Kale and Lemon
1/2 c. pecans
1 lb. angel hair pasta
1/2 c. extra virgin olive oil, divided
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 t. dried chili flakes
1/2 lb. chopped kale, stems discarded
Zest of lemon
Juice of 1 lemon (about 1/4 c.-1/2 c.)
8 torn basil leaves (this herb has become one of my recent faves - it's got a refreshing and distinctive taste)
2 t. kosher salt
2 t. freshly ground black pepper
4 T. grated Parmesan cheese
Toast pecans in a non-stick skillet for 3 minutes over medium heat. Let cool. (You will chop these when they are cooled down.) Cook pasta according to package directions minus one minute.
While the pasta is cooking, heat 1/4 c. of olive oil in pan then add garlic and chili flakes. Stir for 30 seconds. (This is the equivalent of singing "Happy Birthday" twice. Unless of course your name is Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.) After singing for your supper, add kale and lemon zest. Stir. Add cooked pasta, remaining 1/4 c. of olive oil, lemon juice, basil, salt, and pepper. Stir until everything is coated and combined, about 1-2 minutes.
Plate pasta then sprinkle with with Parmesan and chopped pecans. Enjoy your divine dinner!
