Hi, Friends!!!

First and foremost, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! My wish for you all is a joyful, bright, healthy, prosperous and happiest new year ahead!

Also, in the words of Oprah, Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get IT right.

Whatever that IT is, we can work on IT and get closer to perfecting IT. Kale might be able to help?  😉 As well as some hard work… and a prayer.

I want to live in a world where I can put most everything in one pot and have it come out better than I could have ever imagined it. THIS is THAT! As well as that One-Pot Caprese Pasta.

Since many of you (us) are on the lets-eat-better-this-year bandwagon, my contribution to our journey includes this Kale and Feta One Pot Pasta.

I know many just cringe at the thought of Kale, but it really isn’t so bad. I mean, don’t eat it raw ’cause that’s just wrong! Well, unless it’s in a Banana, Kiwi and Kale Smoothie, then yeah, raw is the way to go, but otherwise, just don’t. I can’t even get used to the Kale Chips thing, but sauteeing it and keepin’ it part of this pasta dinner makes a profound difference.

This dish is as comforting as mac ‘n cheese and a big slice of chocolate cake. I’m totally lying.

BUT, this IS a big bowl of love and comfort at the healthy level. Also, because Feta has such a strong flavor, it only takes a tiny bit to get the flavor of the cheese, thus you don’t need to use a lot to enjoy it in this healthy dish.

Aaaand speaking of healthy? I thought I should share some of my go-to’s when the extra, post-Holidays-bulge starts to get in the way.

Here are my TOP 10 Healthy Dinner Ideas!

  1. Hi there,
    I’m excited to make this tonight and already purchased all the ingredients, but I cannot seem to find the process for cooking the dish. Do you literally throw everything in the pot at once and cook according to the pasta directions or are there additional steps? Thank you in advance for your help.

      Hi! Are you able to see the recipe? You have to scroll down past all the pics to find it. You want to precook the kale before adding the water and the pasta. Then you need to cook it all together for another 12-ish minutes. If you can’t find the recipe on the page, let me know, please.
