Kale and Beet Bowtie Pasta

Happy Monday friends!
I hope you are having a wonderful start to your week!

I made scrumptious Kale and Beet Bowtie Pasta for dinner today and I was so excited with how it came out! We eat a lot of Kale in our house and lately I have really been into beets (you can check out the other yummy recipe I made with beets HERE).
The earthiness of beets paired with kale, extra virgin olive oil and a liberal dose of parmesan cheese is mouth watering! So delicious and my kiddos didn't even miss the meat! I think this meal would pair nicely with a glass of Sauvignon blanc... :)

Are you ready for the recipe? Great! Here we go...

I sliced 3 organic beets...

Chopped up 2 bunches of organic kale...

Meanwhile, I started boiling water for the whole wheat bowtie pasta...

I steamed the sliced beets with a bit of olive oil for ten minutes....

Then I added the kale to steam for an additional five minutes (15 minutes total for the beets)...

Place a portion of pasta on the plate and top with kale/beet mixture. Add parmesan cheese and a drizzle of olive oil...

Voila! Easy, delicious vegetarian dinner!

Wash and slice 3 beets (medium sliced) and set aside.
Wash and chop 2 bunches of kale and set aside.
Steam the beets with 2 tablespoons olive oil for 10 minutes.
Start boiling the pasta (I like to cook it for about 8 minutes. DO NOT overcook).
After 10 minutes of steaming the beets, add the kale and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
Drain pasta and place a portion of it on plates. Add the beet/kale mixture, drizzle with olive oil and generously add shaved parmesan cheese on top.
Serve immediately.
