kale sun dried tomato pasta
This kale sun dried tomato pasta was a quick recipe I made last night for dinner. Sometimes I am in a crunch and I don’t have anything plan for dinner so last night I just took a look at my pantry and fridge and this is what I came up with.
My kids loved it even though I added some pepper flakes to give it some heat. I think the mixture of the thyme as well as the red paprika, and let’s not forget the wine, made this pasta exceptional.
I also added tons of garlic. I love garlic so every time I have to use it for recipes I go over board. My family doesn’t mind so tons of garlic works for us!
If you like you could also add fresh spinach instead of kale or any other greens of your choice. I have done a similar recipe before using both spinach and mushrooms and it was equally good.
If you don’t like anchovies you can omit them and just use salt. The anchovy flavor doesn’t come through at all but it is your choice to use them or not.
On another note, I have about 3 weeks left for the torture to begin. When I say torture I mean school. Mentally I am preparing myself because it is going to be a very hard road. PA school is no joke so I hope I succeed. To say that I am crapping my pants is an understatement…I will keep you posted!
Anyhow, I hope you get to make this kale sun dried tomato pasta. If you want something quick and delicious this is it, and you don’t have to add so much garlic if you don’t want to!
kale sun dried tomato pasta
Miryam's original recipe
Yield: 6 servings
Total Time: 20 minutes
- 1 lb whole wheat linguine
- 3 tbs olive oil
- 2 large tomatoes, chopped
- 2 oz can anchovies
- 10 garlic cloves, chopped (less if you like)
- 1/2 cup white wine
- 2 oz sun dried tomatoes
- 10 oz fresh chopped kale
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp thyme
- 1/2 tsp pepper flakes
- 1/2 tsp celtic salt
Cook pasta according to package instructions.
In a large skillet, over medium to high heat, add the olive oil and anchovies and stir until they start to disintegrate. This will take less than a minute. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute until fragrant.
Add the tomatoes, spices and salt. Stir and cook for 1 minute or so. Add the sun dried tomatoes and wine and let the sauce cook on high heat for about 5 minutes. Add the kale and stir until it starts to wilt and cook down. About two minutes.
Add the cooked pasta and stir. Serve immediately.
NOTE: You can omit the anchovies and add some extra salt.
Friend this recipe looks só flavourful with all the garlic, sun dried tomato and the spices. I love anchovies too. This recipe is definitely calling my name.
Ps: good luck with the school :-)
Well that was easy getting dinner tonight figured out!
I prefer my kale crispy like in a chip or pan fried up in some olive oil but sun dried tomatoes are my jam! At least now I know what’s for dinner tomorrow ;)
Omg, I need this in my life now! I am a sucker for a good, hearty pasta!
This looks beyond amazing!
I love the flavor anchovies can give to a recipe and this pasta looks so super amazing!
This pasta dish is unbelievable!! And such beautiful photos!
I’m obsessed with sun dried tomatoes, and this dish looks pretty much perfect!!
This looks delicious. I love the additions of the anchovies and sun dried tomatoes. I can’t wait to make it!
Hi Miryam! Thanks yet again for another great recipe. I made this on Wednesday for dinner, and it was superb! The flavours worked out really, really well together, and it was super-easy to make. I dressed it up with a few grilled chicken breast slices, and… toasted bread crumbs (also with a bit of the sun-dried tomato oil and more thyme). I’ve been kind of in love with toasted breadcrumbs on pasta after finding this: http://www.forkknifeswoon.com/food-drink/pasta/2014/02/garlic-sage-and-brown-butter-pasta/. Your recipe was just calling for them as well. They added a really great crunchy texture to your already wonderful pasta! Definitely going on my regular rotation now.
I love all of the ingredients you used in this recipe, Miryam! What a wonderful and healthy easy dinner recipe. :)
This pasta recipe is great. I’m in the process of making this for my dinner. Thanks for the nice recipe.
Love! Thank you for this recipe and good luck at school!
This post was made for me. Pasta is my favorite food ever. I’ve already made half of them, but I will definitely try some of the rest!
Pasta is my favorite dish in Chinese food when I am going to any restaurant I mostly prefer to eat pasta. When I see this blog I think this is only for me as I free to my English essay assignments I will try this recipe this weekend.
