Recipes: Kale Side Dish and Kale Pasta (served to 3 year old twins!)

Kale Side Dish

Saute chopped up pancetta in olive oil until pancetta is nicelybrowned. Add 1-2 cloves finely diced garlic. Saute. Add roughly chopped kale and saute. If it gets too dry, splash in some water. Saute until kale is done. (This is under 10 minutes)

Kale Pasta

Saute a handfull of chopped red onions until carmelized in olive oil. Add diced proscuitto and saute until brown (could use a hot dog too, for kids). Add 1 clove (or less) finely chopped garlic--saute. Add a splash of water to unstick the carmelized onions from bottom and add 1 or two BIG kale leaves FINELY chopped and a handful of frozen peas. Saute (add some pasta water if it is too thick). Put a little dab of butter on the pasta and then toss in the Kale mix over wagon wheels with a splash of pasta water and LOTS of grated cheese. (This takes maybe 10-15 minutes to make). Tastes like sweet Mac and Cheese.
