Radish & Kale Spaghetti

One of my favorite comfort food recipes is spaghetti with just an olive oil and Parmesan cheese base.  I throw in whatever veggies are in the fridge and dig in.  The lemon juice gives it tang.  Add some red chili flakes or sriracha if you want some heat.

  • Drain the pasta.  Throw it back in the large pot and toss in the contents of the radish and kale pan.  Add e.v. olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper to taste.  Serve on a plate and top with Parmesan Cheese.  Happy Eating!  Beckie
