This recipe for Shrimp Scampi Pasta with Kale is delicious and nutritious. It's a great way to get your veggies!


1 pound linguini
1 pound fresh kale, washed well, stemmed and coarsely chopped
4 tablespoons olive oil and 3 additional tablespoons for coating the pasta
4 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
20 raw jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
Juice of 1 lemon
3 tablespoons chopped parsley

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. When the water has come to a boil add the linguini and give it a stir. Bring it back to a boil and add the kale, stirring occasionally.

When the pasta has reached the al dente stage, about 8-9 minutes, drain it and the kale in a colander. Place the pasta and kale into a large bowl and toss with 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.

While the pasta is cooking, heat a large sauté pan and add the 4 tablespoons olive oil and the butter. When the butter has melted, add the garlic and sauté over medium heat for 2-3 minutes taking care not to brown—or burn—the garlic. Add the shrimp and sauté for about 5 minutes or until shrimp are cooked and opaque. Add the lemon juice and chopped parsley. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.

Divide the linguini into 4 pasta bowls and top with 5 shrimp each. Pour the garlic and oil from the sauté pan over the shrimp and pasta. Serve with shredded Parmesan and warm crusty bread. Serves 4.
