  • 1
    2 cup(s) uncooked Rigatoni
    1/8 teaspoon table Salt or to taste for cooking pasta  
    Cook rigatoni in salted water according to package directions.
  • 2
    8 ounces uncooked Turkey Sausage(s) (Sweet Italian Variety)
    4 cup(s) uncooked Kale (roughly chopped into bite-sized pieces) 
    Meanwhile, remove sausage from casing and cook in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, breaking up sausage as it cooks, about 3 minutes. Add kale; cook, stirring frequently, until limp, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • 3
    1 cup(s) canned Chicken Broth 
    1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
    1/4 teaspoon table Salt 
    Add broth to skillet and scrape up browned bits on bottom of skillet with a wooden spoon; season with salt and pepper. Cover skillet and reduce heat to low; cook until kale is tender, about 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in rigatoni; heat through.
  • 4
    1/2 cup(s) shredded Parmesan Cheese (Parmigiano-Reggiano recommended) 
    Sprinkle each serving with about 2 tablespoons of cheese before serving. Yields about 1 1/2 cups per serving.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Make this dish vegetarian by swapping cannellini beans for the sausage and vegetable broth for the chicken broth (could affect PointsPlus values).
    2. Try broccoli rabe when kale's not available.
