One Pot Pasta in a Jiffy

Tonight I needed to figure out a quick meal for my husband and me before we zipped off to our daughters' first softball game of the season. In literally 15 minutes, this savory one pot pasta dish was ready to go!

Pasta, Sausage and Kale
1/2 pound pasta (any shape will do!)
2 aidells Italian Style smoked chicken sausage (or any kind of sausage you like)
1/4 cup julienne sun dried tomatoes in olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon basil
4 leaves of kale (or spinach)
grated parmesan

While you boil the pasta, grill the sausages (or you could even warm them in microwave to make it really simple). Chop the kale or spinach leaves and put them in the bottom of a colander. When the pasta is finished cooking, pour into colander over kale or spinach, therefore cooking the greens while draining the pasta. Put pasta and greens in a bowl and add sun dried tomatoes. The olive oil in the tomatoes makes the pasta moist. Add the salt, pepper and herbs, mix and then top with grated parmesan...you now have a delicious, quick meal!
