Kale & Feta Pasta One-Pot-Wonder

It’s time for another One-Pot-Wonder recipe!  This means that just like my Italian One-Pot-Wonder, you simply throw all the ingredients into one pot and let them work their magic.

But before I give you the super simple steps for this recipe, I have to give you a disclaimer.

I’m not the biggest kale fan.

I know, I KNOW.  That’s very unpopular to say these days.  It seems like everyone LOVES kale and you know what?  Good for those people.  I’m just not one of them.

But Corey is.

And Corey LOVES this dish.

When we were meal-planning for this past week, this was the first dish that he named.  He even likes eating the leftovers of it.  (Again, good for him).

And I like this dish.  Really, I do.  But, as you will see below, I pick around the kale as best I can.

Sue me.

With that disclaimer out of the way, I give you the

5 cups water

1 12 ounce package of linguine

3 cloves of garlic, minced

Salt & pepper to taste

Remove the stockpot from the heat and add water, pasta, garlic, salt and pepper

Return to heat.  Cook over high until mixture comes to a boil

Reduce the heat to low and cook for about 10-13 minutes or until the noodles are at your desired consistency and the water is reduced.  Stir the pasta frequently

That’s a whole lotta kale, folks

Remove from heat and let the pasta sit for 1-2 minutes

Drizzle with the remaining extra virgin olive oil and stir in the feta

Put that pasta on your plate, top it with some pepper, and enjoy!  (Unless you’re me.  Then you’d take this opportunity to pick around the kale.  And then you’d enjoy)

See that tiny sliver of kale sticking out of the pasta?  That’s my attempt at being healthy.
