  • 1 can Rotel tomatoes mild
  • 2 cups penne pasta gluten-free if necessary
  • 1 cup kale torn from ribs and chopped
  • ½ cup parmesan or cheddar cheese for topping


  • Heat olive oil over medium-high. Add onion and garlic and saute for a few minutes, stirring often until it starts to brown.
  • Add sausage to the pot and continue to cook for a few minutes.
  • Add broth, tomatoes and juices and penne pasta. Stir well to submerge pasta and bring to a boil.

  • Add parmesan, salt and pepper to taste.
