Want to increase the variety of vegetables you serve your family? Here's a really good, super easy and fast recipe using a really healthy green vegetable that most people don't get much of, plus fresh garlic.

1 T plus ΒΌ C olive oil

1-2 bunches of kale, stems and center ribs discarded, leaves torn into bite-size pieces

1 lb whole wheat pasta (preferably organic)

6 garlic cloves, minced fine

1 C Parmesan cheese (about 3 oz.)

salt and pepper

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add 1 T oil. Add pasta and cook to within about two minutes of being done. Stir in the kale and finish cooking the pasta. Meanwhile, combine the remaining 1/4 c of oil and garlic in a small, heavy saucepan over medium heat. Stir until heated through, about two minutes.

Drain pasta and kale. Transfer it to a large serving bowl. Add the oil and garlic mixture and toss. Mix in Parmesan and season to taste with salt and pepper.
