Serves: 2
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

What You Need

  • 8 ounces Nature’s Greens® Organic Kale
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • Juice and zest of half a lemon
  • 1 packed cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
  • 8 ounces short pasta (rigatoni, penne, fusilli & farfalle work well)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

What You Do

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Salt water and add kale. Cook 3-4 minutes, until the kale is bright green. Add the drained kale to a blender. Reserve the pot of hot water for cooking the pasta.
  2. To the blender add garlic, lemon juice and zest, basil, avocado, parmesan and a bit of the reserved hot water. Blend until very smooth, about 3 minutes. Use a damper to help the blender along—add more hot water if the sauce needs loosening. Season with salt and pepper. Taste and adjust the sauce as needed.
  3. Bring the water back up to a rapid boil. Cook pasta according to package directions until al dente. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking liquid and drain the pasta.
  4. Add the cooked pasta back to the pot and reduce the heat to medium low. Add green blender sauce, ½ cup of the reserved hot water and butter. Use tongs and toss everything together until the pasta is nicely coated and glossy. Serve with extra parmesan and black pepper.
