Grilled Chicken and Kale Pasta

After my trip to Delaware, I knew I had to get back on my health kick. I had eaten bags of doughnuts, buckets of popcorn, and boxes of Buncha Crunch. It was calorie madness. So I popped down to the farmer’s market and picked up one of the healthiest veggies I know, kale.

A few things you should know about your curly green friend: They are high in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, calcium, iron, and are a great detox food. Which is exactly what I needed after all that salt and sugar!

After all that traveling, I didn’t have the motivation to get all fancy and wanted something simple, so I tossed together some kale, mushrooms, and grilled chicken in lasagna noodles. Lasagna noodles you say? I improvise a lot, and when I was out of pappardelle, I sliced up some lasagna noodles for a quick substitute. Try it for yourself!

This recipe cooks for 1, as the majority of the time I make myself something quick a head of time to take to work for lunch. Just double everything (or quadruple) if you’re making for a bigger group.
