I’mmmmmmmm baaaaack! Did you miss me?

Jumping back into the swing of things after a very long hiatus I am pleased to share my simply delicious Shrimp & Kale Pasta.

Summer Shrimp & Kale Pasta
This simple & healthy pasta dish is the perfect meal served hot or cold and pairs perfectly with a nice chardonnay. Package it up and take it with you on that outdoor concert you have planned or simply for a nice light dinner on the back patio watching the sunset….perfect!
Here’s what you need:
2 lbs Medium sized shrimp (peeled & deveined)
1 bunch Kale greens
1 large can diced tomatoes (juice drained)
3 shallots (diced)
1 box angel hair pasta (whole grain works well)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Kosher/Sea Salt
3 Garlic cloves diced/crushed
1 lemon
Here’s what you do:
1- Boil pasta in salted water until it’s just under al dente (about 2 minutes less than what the instructions call for)
2- Once done, drain and rinse pasta in cold water, set aside
3- In a sauce pan on med-high heat, add 3 tablespoons of the oil
4- Add to pan garlic, shallots, and 1 tsp of salt and saute until translucent
5- Add to pan shrimp, saute until light pink. Remove from pan and set aside
7- Add to pan kale greens, saute until wilted (adding a bit more oil if leaves begin to stick to pan)
8- Add to pan pasta & tomatoes
9- Once heat is well-distributed to pasta, add the shrimp back to the pan and the juice of the whole lemon. Mix well for even distribution off all ingredients
10- Finish by drizzling additional oil on top
Make it a Great Summer Pasta Tasting Day!
