Some nights call for a good cozy dinner filled with healthy vegetables and loads of pasta. I can't think of a night that doesn't call for that right off the top of my head, but I am sure there are nights when this wouldn't sound like the perfect dinner. Let me know if you think of one.
Until then, this is the perfect one-pot-wonder filled with hearty vegetables, sausage, noodles and topped with parmesan cheese. It's epic. You will love it.
1 lb orecchiette
1 lb Italian pork sausage
1 red onion, about 1 cup chopped
1 celery rib, about 1 cup diced
1 carrot, about 1 cup diced
6 oz tomato paste
1 ½ c water
3 cloves garlic
3 cups dino kale, chopped
