Linguine with Breadcrumbs and Kale

Linguine with Breadcrumbs and Kale

Yields: 2-3 servings

1/2 pound linguine (whole grain is nice)

2 cloves garlic, minced
2 slices day old bread, cubed
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 large bunch kale, chopped
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
Salt & Pepper

Cook pasta according to package directions.

Process bread in a food processor until it’s about the consistency of coarse cornmeal.

Heat ¼ c. oil in a frying pan and add the breadcrumbs. Once the breadcrumbs are slightly toasted and golden brown, add the garlic and continue to stir until well toasted.

Add the kale to the frying pan with a little bit of the pasta water and sauté quickly.

Toss the oil mixture with the drained pasta and add salt & pepper to taste. Add the rest of the oil as needed. Mix in parmesan and serve.
