Kale - A Super Food

Kale is one of the healthiest vegetables around.  Kale has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer nutrients in it.  With all the benefits Kale can provide, I wanted to expose my kids to it.  I decided the best way for them to try it was to add it to pasta.  Here is a recipe I made up with what I had in the house.
I started by chopping up kale, sopressata (italian salami) and onions and sauteing it in olive oil and garlic.
  After about five minutes I added 1 cup of heavy cream and lowered the flame to simmer.
I then added half a log of goat cheese.
In the meantime I cooked a pound of pasta and drained it.
I tossed it with my made-up sauce.

The best part was the kids loved it.  Kale is a crunchier than spinach.  
To me, it's sort of a cross between salad and spinach.  

How about you?  Have you tried Kale?

I'm off to Binghamton, NY this weekend for a tournament my daughter is playing in.
Hope you all have a great weekend.

Oh yum! I'm pretty sure anything tastes good when it's mixed with creamy pasta. LOL! I do some sneaky mommy stuff too with my kiddos and add in veggies where I can. :-)

I put it in my green smoothies.

hi Judy =- we also eat so much Kale - we use it like spinach but also have raw juice every morning. We make it with kale, cucumbers, ginger, a green apple and a whole lemon. it's amazing!

I am a kale lover too!! I make "kale crack" - roasted kale with olive oil and sea salt. Ends up like a crunchy potato chip that is good for you!!

One of my BFF's grew kale last summer and gave me a bunch. I didn't know what to do with it when I got it home, and it never occurred to me to add it to a cooked dish. I was thinking lettuce like.
