An excellent, fast, and healthy idea for pasta: this kale and hazelnut pesto sauce. It will surprise you for how quick the preparation is, and the incredibly special flavor you will bring to the table. Ideal to surprise your guests as they have probably never tasted this.
The perfect kale to use is black tuscan kale, also knows as lacinato or dinosaur kale. It marries wonderfully with Parmesan or Pecorino cheese. Likewise, you can also use all types of curly kale.
I used it to season some delicious spaghetti (any other shape of pasta works well). But this kale pesto is also excellent on a pizza, a focaccia, or even for a creamy risotto!
