2 or 2 Serving Dinner

Penne Aglio Olio

with Red Kale and Roasted Cauliflower

Olive oil infused with simple, yet bold flavors is often used as a sauce in Italy, and that is literally what “aglio olio” translates to: garlic and olive oil. Red kale is an heirloom leafy vegetable, and its beautiful purple tinted leaves are low in carbohydrates, high in protein, and provides over 100% of your daily doses of Vitamin A and C. The kale pairs perfectly with chickpea pasta and crispy roasted cauliflower.

INSTRUCTIONS

1
Prepare the vegetables

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for the penne. Peel and mince the shallot. Peel and mince 3 cloves garlic. Destem the red kale and roughly chop the leaves. Zest the lemon. Chop the cauliflower florets into smaller pieces.

2
Roast the cauliflower

Add the chopped cauliflower to a baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp vegetable oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast in the oven until browned and crispy, about 20 to 22 minutes. Remove from the oven and toss with red wine vinegar.

3
Sauté the vegetables

Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat with 2 tbsp olive oil. Add the minced shallot, minced garlic, and just ¼ tsp roasted garlic sea salt and cook until translucent, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the chopped red kale and as many of the red pepper flakes as you’d like and cook until the kale is wilted, about 3 to 4 minutes.

4
Cook the pasta

Add the penne to the boiling water and stir. Cook, stirring occasionally, until just al dente (or slightly undercooked), about 5 to 8 minutes. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta water. Drain the penne and add it to the skillet with the kale.

5
Finish the sauce

Add the reserved pasta water and 3 tbsp olive oil to the skillet. Bring the pasta to a simmer, reduce heat to low, and add the lemon zest and half the vegan parmesan. Cook the penne until heated through, about 1 to 2 minutes. Taste and season the pasta with as much of the roasted garlic sea salt as you’d like.

6
Serve

Divide the penne aglio olio between large shallow bowls. Top with roasted cauliflower and sprinkle with the remaining vegan parmesan. Serve with lemon wedges.
