Organic Sausage & Kale Spaghetti

There is nothing better than pasta for dinner.

This Organic Sausage & Kale Spaghetti with garlic and parmesan is one of our favourite methods for cooking pasta. The spicy Italian sausage paired with the brightness of kale and topped with parmesan make for the most delicious vegetable dominant pasta dinner. Pro tip: drizzle a little olive oil to your plated dishes to really get a contrast of textures and let the flavours stand out.

Cook the Sauce  

  • Heat 1 tbsp. olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.  
  • If using sausage, remove from the casing and add to the pan with the Italian Spice Mix. (If using sausage filling, open package add contents directly to pan.) Stir, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until the sausage is cooked through, 8-10 minutes.
