The first thing I did was cook the garlic in extra virgin olive oil until opaque. While that cooked a brought a pot of salted water to a boil. Then I added the pasta and kale and cooked for nine minutes until the noodles and kale were tender.
I then added the noodles, kale and chopped chicken to the pan. Next, I thoroughly mixed the pasta, kale, garlic and chicken together.
At the very end, I decided to add some black beans. I used ones from a can so no additional cooking was required.
I enjoyed this dish immediately while hot, but I also ate it cold tossed with a little bit of balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
This dish was so delicious and is perfect for meal planning. I'll show you soon how, I use the dish in my weekly meal plan.
