Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine pasta, water, broth, tomatoes, oil, Italian seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and crushed red pepper in a large pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Uncover, reduce heat to medium-high and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes. Stir in kale and cook, stirring often, until most of the liquid has been absorbed, 5 to 7 minutes more. (If using spinach, add it after about 10 minutes, so it cooks in the remaining 2 to 3 minutes.) Stir in basil. Garnish with Parmesan, if desired.

I only added the 2 cups of broth. I left out the 2 cups of water and I'm glad that i did. Pasta came out a bit soupy even with just the 2 cups of broth. I would definitely make this again but maybe use 1.5 cups of broth. Read More

This was great! Easy to make and my 11-year old loved it too. Mine was still a little soupy when the pasta was fully cooked. I ll either try to find a thicker whole wheat noodle next time or reduce the liquid slightly. Even being a little soupy it was delicious and adding some cheese for garnish helped (vegan cheese for me and used veggie broth to keep it plant-based). Read More

This is a great tasty and easy recipe. I will definitely be making this again. I did do it a little differently though instead of onion and garlic powder I used an onion and two cloves of garlic. I sauteed both of them then added the rest of the ingredients. Read More
