I made a batch of this kale pesto for a pasta party at my house last weekend. This DIY dinner was our fourth annual.
For past parties see:
First, I'll share the pesto with you. Then, I'll show you our glorious pasta bar.
From Pinch of Yum
2 cups kale and parsley combined (I used a lot more kale them parsley. You be the judge here)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1 clove garlic
the juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup almonds
1. Toss it all in the food processor until it becomes a paste. That's it!
I gave myself a nice swirl of kale pesto on top of pumpkin spice gouda mac and cheese the other night.
Now it's party time! For the pasta toppings we had: butternut squash, onions, chicken, mushrooms, sausage, brussels sprouts, basil, ricotta, and Parmesan cheese.
We cooked up a few pounds of pasta (I found fall theme pasta shapes at Home Good's) and had 3 sauces: marinara, kale pesto, and alfredo.
We lived for several days off of the leftovers from this party!
