Pasta with Kale and Fontina

Pasta with Kale and Fontina

There are certain things in the world that cheer me up, no matter how stressed, or depressed, or worn out.  What would this miracle drug be?  No drug.  It’s bacon.  Seriously.  Bacon makes it all better.  And this recipe from, Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast: 250 Easy, Delicious Recipes for Any Time of Day (Everyday Food) proves once again, that it doesn’t take much.  Four strips of bacon for four servings, and yet, that’s all you need.  I’m calling this my Almost Meatless Monday.  It was quick and easy, and nutritious with all the kale.  I guess it would have been even more nutritious if I had used the whole wheat pasta that it called for, but I haven’t found a whole wheat pasta that I like yet.

And guess what?  I don’t even have to type it in because you can find it on Martha’s site:  Whole-Wheat Pasta with Kale and Fontina


This will be my entry for this week’s Presto Pasta Nights hosted by HoneyB of The Life & Loves of Grumpy’s Honey Bunch .

    I hear ya on the Whole wheat pasta. If I find a recipe that calls for it, I use Barilla Plus. Have you tried that? It’s like half regular, half wheat and really good.

    I made this one, but subbed the kale with spinach. And the bacon? *high five*

    This is such a great combination. Pasta is such a wonderful meal on these damp fall days. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

    Bacon does bring happiness. Then you added fontina and I’m giddy! (I haven’t found a whole wheat pasta that does the tick either.)

    Yum! this is a great pasta. I get Everyday Food and love the recipes for everyday and company, and so satisfying! I like to throw kale into many dishes that I make.

    This recipe always catches my attention in the book. These are some of my favorite ingredients.

    Have you tried that white wheat pasta. I think it’s called smart taste or Ronzoni or something like that. It’s a lot better than the full on whole wheat.
