Easy Kale, Shallots, and Pasta

Ingredients
Half a bunch of kale
About half a cup of vegetable broth
1 giant or 2 normal sized shallots
3-4 cloves of garlic
1/2 box of pasta
Handful of walnuts (toasting directions below)

Process
Set walnuts onto a toaster-oven safe plate and toast for about 10 minutes.

Set a pot of water for paste to boil.

Chop shallots and sauté in olive oil. They should get brown around the edges and ideally a bit crispy.

Chop the garlic and toss into the pan with the shallots.

After sautéing them together for a few minutes, add the broth and stir. Then add the chopped toasted walnuts.

The sauce should thicken a bit. Chop the kale and when the water is boiling, add it to the sauce. Cover and remove from the heat while the pasta cooks.

When the pasta is nearly ready, turn the heat on the kale and sauce. Stir around until heated through and until the kale has wilted.

Combine the pasta and sauce and serve!
