This baby kale pasta recipe is a quick and easy dinner that is delicious, filling, and makes everyone happy at the dinner table!

Pasta night is always a good night around here. I love it because all I have to do is toss in a few tasty ingredients with my pasta, give it a toss or two in a skillet and dinner is served. It’s hard to do pasta wrong if you have good ingredients.

I like to keep things simple and work with what I have on hand. In this case, turkey bacon, tomatoes and baby kale! Baby kale is incredibly nutritious stuff (it’s a superfood!).  Add some protein and other veggies and you’ve got yourself a complete meal. I love on pot/pan meals! Well technically, two pots/pans because you have to cook the pasta first. But whatever. You get what I’m saying….

HOW TO SERVE BABY KALE PASTA

This is a very simple dish that doesn’t require a lot of fuss. The best way to serve this after cooking is with a small pat of butter and some parmesan cheese. You can add salt and pepper if you wish. But that’s it! Not much fuss at all.

THE PASTA

For this recipe, I used Banza chickpea pasta. I love the brand and it’s far easier on my blood sugar than regular pasta. But if you like regular pasta, feel free! I highly recommend a whole grain pasta with this dish. Not just because it’s healthier, but also because it adds a certain flavor that works super well with this dish.
