I love TJs!!! Trader Joe’s just my kale pesto pasta recipe a whole lot easier! I just discovered their pre-cut, pre-washed kale:
I had no idea that they sold kale in a bag!! It made this kale lover so happy!!! My kale pesto recipe with roasted vegetables is one of my most popular dishes. You basically make a pesto sauce out of roasted kale instead of using the typical basil. Not having to cut and wash and dry all the kale makes my recipe so much faster! All you have to do is open the bag and spread it directly onto a baking sheet, spray with olive oil and roast in the oven. (Though sometimes if I am not in a rush, I will remove the tough stems of the kale because I find it bitter)
Trader Joe’s is brilliant! I like all their other bagged vegetables, too! For this dinner, I picked up the pre-cut broccoli and butternut squash to roast and mix into the pasta:
This cut the prep time for making this dish to pretty much ZERO. I love any time saving shortcuts like this! And the pasta was just as delicious! YUMM!
