The meal this week is a simple one, and one of my favorite ways to use some great seasonal ingredients. And the kale and white beans give it a healthy punch. I love kale for its earthy taste and hearty texture, but if you have an aversion to kale you could substitute spinach. I often find that it’s easier to introduce new foods to children by using them in dishes that are somewhat familiar to them. My kids love pasta and sausage, so the kale doesn’t stand out so much. I use turkey sausage in this recipe to keep the fat content low, but feel free to use whatever sausage you have on hand. Like most of my recipes this one is fairly easy to adapt. I love the flavors of this pasta dish – they’re just perfect for these cold late winter days.
