Vegan Roasted Kale Pesto Pasta Recipe


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 
  2. In a large bowl, toss the chopped kale and garlic cloves with the olive oil(or if you want an all oil free option, use veggie broth) and a few pinches of salt and pepper. Rub the olive oil all over the kale and massage it in to make sure the kale is all moist. 
  3. Pour the kale and garlic on to a baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for about 8-10 minutes. The kale should be nice and soft. Remove from the oven when done.
  4. In the meantime, cook the pasta according to package instructions. Drain the pasta when done. 
  5. If you are adding vegan sausage, slice and brown on each side in a non stick  pan while the pasta is cooking. Set aside.
