  • 1 cup pine nuts, toasted

Step 2

For each serving, to order: Reheat about 1 cup pasta in simmering water.

Step 3

In a saute pan, heat 2 tsp. oil and a pinch of garlic. Cook for 1 minute. Add about 2 oz. kale and cook until wilted.

Step 4

Deglaze with 1 Tbsp. wine and add about 1/2 cup red peppers. Season with salt and pepper.

Drain pasta and toss it with the vegetables. Plate it and garnish with 2 tsp. pine nuts and 1 1/2 Tbsp. cheese.
