Penne with Ricotta Cheese and Greens

Cooking greens are abundant in spring. Here, Tuscan kale (also know as black kale) adds freshness to pasta. Fresh ricotta makes a satisfyingly easy sauce; look for it at Italian delis and upscale markets.

Good Basic Recipe
May 15, 2013
This is a good basic recipe but a little bland. I tried it to see if I would like Kale. I had read that it can be bitter, but mine wasn't bitter at all - I used the Tuscan Kale from Trader Joes - it's all washed, cut and ready to use. Next time I will doctor it up by adding some tomatoes, sauteed mushrooms, more herbs and maybe some cut up chicken.
Pros: Quick, Easy, Healthy, Adaptable, Will Make Again

Savory winter month dish
February 25, 2012
We live in Wisconsin and this is the perfect recipe for our long winter month. I prefer to buy locally grown vegetables even during the winter month and kale is a good one in Wisconsin. Since we also have our famous cheeses in WI, it is easy to find a locally made good ricotta cheese as well! So 2 thumbs up, this unusual recipe combines what our states has to offer and brings a bit of Italy to the table, too!
Pros: Quick, Good Value, Healthy, Will Make Again
