Directions

1

Bring a big pot of water to a boil. Add in the kale leaves and boil for 30-45 seconds.

2

Take out the leaves, but keep the water to boil the pasta in. Cook the pasta until al dente. Reserve some of the pasta water before draining.

3

While pasta is cooking, in a food processor, blend all the ingredients for the sauce (kale, pistachios, oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and cheese). Add water little by little to create the perfect consistency. I usually add about a 1/4 a cup of water.

4

Once pasta is cooked, return to pot and add the kale pesto and butter. Mix and add the reserved water until you have the desired consistency. Enjoy warm!
