How to Sauté Kale
Between soccer, fall ball, tutoring, swim practice and everything else, evenings can be pretty hectic, right? Planning is definitely key to balancing everything, but sometimes we just forget to plan. I know I can’t be the only one. This weeknight dinner was concocted on one such evening where I just threw what I had into a sauté pan and hoped for the best. Well, it was delicious and done in 20 minutes.
How to Sauté Kale – Ingredients
2 tbsp olive oil
1lb Sweet Italian turkey sausage (removed from casing)
½ a yellow onion (diced)
1 package of fresh baby kale (roughly 4 large handfuls)
½ lb cooked pasta of your choice
1 tbsp butter
Salt & pepper
Step By Step for How to Sauté Kale
First, get that water going for your pasta.
Now heat up the olive oil in a large sauté pan. Toss in your onion and sausage. Check your pasta water, it should be about done. Get your pasta cooking!
Once the sausage is browned, the onions are translucent, and your pasta is near done, toss in the kale and add some salt and pepper. Cover and turn down the heat.
Add the cooked pasta and tablespoon of butter to the sausage and kale, toss and serve. So delicious and filling! Hope you enjoy!
