“I have been trying to include more kale into our diet, but I didn't have many recipes. I had a bit of chorizo in the fridge and some leftover mushrooms and "winged" it. My boys (9, 10, & 13) loved it so much, I realized I'd better write it down so I don't forget. I used portabello mushrooms and penne pasta. Next time I may add some cannelini beans for fun.”
