Farm Fresh Kale and Turkey Pasta Recipe with Golden Grain Pasta

This post was sponsored by Golden Grain Pasta. I was asked to create a simple pasta dish with the holidays in mind and less than 8 ingredients. All opinions and experiences are my own.

Here on the farm we like to keep our meals simple and delicious. This recipe is perfect this time of year to use up leftover turkey from the holidays and only requires a few other pantry staples to get dinner done quickly. It is also the perfect holiday detox from rich food and sweet treats. 

Just simply sundried tomatoes, kale, garlic and turkey.

Farm Fresh Kale and Turkey Pasta

You Will Need:
  • 1 box. Golden Grain Elbows
  • 1 cup kale, ribs removed and coarsely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 cup cubed turkey meat
  • 1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes, drained
  • salt and pepper to taste

Serves 4

Boil the pasta according to the directions on the box. In the last 2 minutes, add the chopped kale. Reserve 1/2 c. of the cooking water and set aside. Drain the pasta and kale thoroughly.

In the pot, saute the garlic in olive oil. Then add the cubed turkey and tomatoes. Toss and heat through. Add the pasta and kale back to the pot and add in a little of the cooking water as necessary to form a simple sauce. Season as you like and serve warm.
