    Slam Dunk Cavatelli with Chicken Sausage and Kale



    • 1 package Premio Cheese & Garlic Chicken Sausage (5 links)
    • 2 13-oz. packages cavatelli pasta (in the frozen section)
    • 1 small bunch kale (roughly chopped)
    • 6 cloves garlic (sliced)
    • 3 cups vegetable broth
    • Olive oil
    How to make Slam Dunk Cavatelli with Chicken Sausage and Kale:

    1. In a large pan, over medium-high heat, add a drizzle of olive oil
    2. Add the sausage links and brown on each side; about 3 minutes each side (don’t worry if not cooked through, it will finish cooking in a bit)
    3. Remove from the pan, and once cooled enough to handle, slice into rounds and set aside
    4. In the same pan, over medium-low heat, add another drizzle of olive oil and add the garlic and kale
    5. Once garlic is lightly golden, add in the broth and simmer for 15-20 minutes.  While that is simmering, go ahead and cook the pasta (I cook mine in the pot of boiling water for 4 minutes then drain it.  I finish cooking it in the pan with the kale and sausage so they absorb the delicious flavors.)
    6. Once kale has simmered for 15-20 minutes, add sausage back in and let simmer for another 5 minutes
    7. Toss the cavatelli in and let cook for another 2-3 minutes.  Sprinkle some grated pecorino over top and enjoy
