Yip I grew me some peas and a boat load of kale… what to do with it all is another question, but in the meantime here’s a quick recipe using both.

Rigatoni with Peas and Kale

1/2 medium onion sliced

6 cloves garlic sliced (yes I love garlic)

1/2 bunch kale thinly sliced

1/2 c fresh peas

1/3 c grated parmesan

1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

2 tbsp olive oil

1/2 pd pasta

1 c veggie stock (or you could use 1 c pasta water, the stock gives it a bit more flavor)

Cook pasta how you like, reserving at least a cup of the cooking liquid.

Heat oil in a pan, saute garlic and onions until golden brown, add, crushed red pepper flakes and 3 tbsp of hot pasta liquid and throw in the kale and peas, cook until wilted and bright green.  Toss pasta into skillet to coat, add cheese, toss again and serve.

    I bet it tastes that much better when you grow it yourself!
