7 Mar 2011 Whole Wheat Pasta with Kale & Sundried Tomatoes

Adapted from Whole Foods Market. Whole wheat pasta with kale and sundried tomatoes. Downloaded from the web on March 6, 2011.

My comment: Kale is a great green and generally pretty inexpensive! I used a red kale with this recipe and changed from Great Northern Beans to Black Beans because that is what I had on hand. Very filling…. I would venture to say this recipe could easily serve 6, but the Points were computed for the suggested serving of 4.

Ingredients

Whole Wheat Pasta with Kale

Copyright © 2011. Adrien Bisson.

1/2 cup sundried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 pound kale – thick stems removed and leaves chopped
1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added Great Northern or other white bean, drained and rinsed
8 ounces whole wheat pasta

Method

1. Soak sundried tomatoes in hot water to cover for 15 minutes to soften them. Then drain and thinly slice.

2. Bring large pot of water to boil for cooking pasta. In separate high-sided skillet, bring 3/4 cup water to simmer. Add onion and cook for 10 minutes or until tender. Stir in kale, beans and 3/4 cup water. Reduce heat to medium, cover and cook 8 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking 4 to 5 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated, greens are wilted and tender and beans are heated through.

3. Add pasta to boiling water and cook according to package directions. Add the sliced sundried tomatoes about 2 minutes before the pasta is done. Drain pasta and tomatoes and add to skillet with greens. Stir to combine.

Servings = 4. Weight Watcher Points = 7.
