This pasta dish completely captured my attention on Pinterest the other day.  It looked super yum!

The bonus was I had both goat cheese and kale in my fridge.  Sweet!  I was missing lemon and shallot, plus I needed to feed my super picky hubby who does not each veggies and our three little munchkins.

The first part was to figure our what Guy was getting compared to the rest of us.  I portioned out his pasta and tossed it in a pan with some butter & Tony Chachere’s {Creole spice mix = YUMMY}.  We also had this fantastic steak left over in the fridge to pair with his noodles and give myself and the munchkins some extra yummy’s on our plate.

The original recipe can be found here.

Here is the modified recipe I ended up making:

10 oz pasta {farfalle}

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 medium size clove of garlic

few shakes of Mrs. Dash {yellow label}

zest of 1 small lime

juice of 1 small lime {I will use 1/2 next time}

about 5 cups of kale {I tore mine} no stems

5 ounces of goat cheese


Start pasta first to get it cooking

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat, add garlic.  Cook about 4 minutes while zesting the lime and tearing the kale.  Add spices and kale.  Stire and add the lime zest and lime juice.  Cook until the leaves are wilted and tender. I added a little water to assist with cooking.

Drain pasta, return to pot, stir in crumbled goat cheese while pasta is hot until it is creamy.  I added a little water to moisten the pasta and help the cheese spread over the noodles.

Toss everything together on a plate  and enjoy!  We paired ours with the leftover steak in slices.

Overall I thought this recipe was just as yummy as it looked in her pictures and I will definitely be making this again!!  Uhm, I totally forgot to take a picture of mine, because it went bye bye into my tummy too fast.  lol   As with all recipes, I think it is a lot about personal taste and being able to modify on the fly to accommodate your supplies on hand and family tastes.   Two Peas & Their Pod is definitely now on my list of websites to follow!
