Ingredient Checklist

Directions

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.

This recipe was delicious! I added a bit more crushed pepper then said and it came out to the perfect spiciness! I saw the review that said to add 1.5 cup of broth and no water and it came out great. My pasta was not too runny and not too dry. This pasta recipe is amazing! 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

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

I followed this recipe exactly and love that it was quick and easy for a weeknight dinner. I will reduce the water to 1 cup next time because it was too soupy. Had I simmered it longer to reduce the pasta would have been mushy. I ended up serving it with toasted garlic bread sticks that helped soak up the extra broth. 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
