Pasta and Kale Salad
Rita says: I like serving things people might not be accustomed to eating, such as the whole-grain pasta used in this recipe. Our members loved this easy pasta salad. The hearty, deep-green kale from Full Circle Farm is a beautiful and nutritious combination with the pasta.
If you're nervous about trying the whole grain, use half white and half whole-wheat the first time. You'll quickly get acclimated!
