Improvising With Kale and Pasta

This recipe came about one day as the result of forgetting to pull something from the freezer for dinner yet again. I had limited options in the fridge—and as much as I loved the idea of chorizo toast and eggs for dinner, it was missing one important component: the vegetables. All I had left in the fridge was kale, and shopping was a day away.

My whole family loved the resulting dish, and now my partner asks for it at least once per month. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: 6 servings


  • 1 pound linguini
  • 1 pound chorizo, ground
  • 5 cups kale, chopped
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Gather and prepare all of the ingredients.
  2. Boil the linguini according to the package instructions and drain.
  3. Heat a pan on medium-high heat. Sear the chorizo in the pan, breaking it up into crumbles.
  4. Remove the chorizo from the pan and set aside. Sauté the onion until translucent; then add the kale and garlic, sautéing until wilted and fragrant.
  5. Add the chorizo back into the pan. Add chicken stock, vinegar, oil, and cooked linguini. Bring up to a simmer; then remove from heat.
  6. Fold in the grated Parmesan cheese and mix until it appears to have dissolved into the sauce. Season to taste.
  7. Serve and enjoy.
