Kale & Zucchini Pasta



1 box of large macaroni pasta

2 medium-sized zucchinis; diced

2 large handfuls of curly kale (or any dark leafy green)

3 tbsp pesto sauce (premade or homemade)

1/2 cup mozzarella balls or chunks

2 tsp olive oil

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp of chili flakes

Parmesan cheese for topping



In a large pot, bring some water to a rolling boil.

Cook the pasta as instructed on the box.

Drain, toss with olive oil (about 1 tsp), and set aside.



In a large pan, heat 1 tsp of olive oil.

Add the zucchini & kale to the pan & add the chili flakes & garlic powder.

Cook veggies until the zucchini pieces have softened & kale has wilted completely.



Once the veggies have cooked down, toss the pasta with the pesto sauce.

Add the veggies & mozzarella chunks & mix well.

Top with parmesan cheese & serve!
