Creamy Kale and Pasta with Sweet Sausage



Ingredients :

  • 10 ounces gemelli pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 (3.5 ounce) links sweet Italian sausage
  • casings removed
  • 1 tomato
  • diced
  • ½ onion
  • diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • minced
  • ½ cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • ½ bunch kale
  • thick stems removed
  • leaves finely chopped
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¾ cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • or to taste (Optional)
  • Methods :

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook gemelli at a boil, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add tomato, onion, and garlic; saute for 3 minutes. Pour in chicken broth and scrape the bottom of the pan to deglaze browned bits. Add kale and cook, tossing occasionally, until wilted and tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • While kale is cooking, reserve 1/2 cup pasta water, and drain pasta. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and cook, stirring constantly with a whisk, for 1 minute. Pour in milk slowly while whisking vigorously to smooth lumps. Season with salt and pepper and continue to cook until mixture begins to bubble and thicken, 7 to 10 minutes. Add reserved pasta water to reach desired consistency as needed. Remove sauce from heat.
  • Pour sauce into sausage mixture, add drained pasta, and toss to evenly coat. Serve warm topped with Parmesan cheese.
