Satisfy your pasta desire with this creamy yet light, guilt-free, Spaghetti With Kale And Ricotta. It’s a complete weeknight meal which gets prepared in less than 15 minutes. We eat spaghetti quite often and we mostly prefer it light. So, this kale and ricotta spaghetti left us completely sated, quite effortlessly.
We both have always been fond of greens. I am not talking about salad here. We mostly like it stir fried with bite size potatoes, cooked with lentils, mixed with fried rice, cooked with meat or stuffed paratha. So, as you can see, we relish greens quite a bit. If there was one green that took a long time to settle in our daily diet, it’s kale! Don’t ask me why but it used to taste a little too bitter to me and I don’t like anything bitter. Hence after a couple of attempts, I gave it up and got convinced that this particular super food is not meant for me. That was about three years back.
Couple of months back, I gave kale yet another shot. I started with a dip and it tasted super good. Well, the dip had a lot of cheese in it. Then, I thought of adding kale to daal, and it tasted very heartening. I didn’t even find it bitter! Finally, I made this spaghetti. You could blend the kale or chop it more finely. I left it chunky and I loved the texture. Few spoonful of ricotta made it creamy without making it too saucy.
So finally, Kale, the super food is settled in our daily diet. And I am even going to add it in smoothies. Yay me!
