Today, I am sharing one of my all time favorite recipes. It’s quick, healthy, and tastes so good you will be blown away! This recipe has whole wheat (or multigrain) pasta, toasted walnuts, pecorino cheese, garlic and lemon… it’s quick to toss together and it tastes like 5-star dining! Thank you Anne Blair Brown for sharing this recipe!
You may know Anne from her many stunning paintings… her work has always been a favorite of ours. You know how some people just have that touch. She’s got it. In spades! Looking at Anne’s paintings you can tell she pushes herself, she is dedicated and it shows. Stunning. Check out her website! And apparently it doesn’t just apply to painting… high-five Anne – this recipe is awesome, thanks for sharing!

A few notes (from me) – be sure to use the Lacinato Kale, it’s not the kale that is in the big bags in the grocery store, it’s much more subtle, it’s not tough, it’s perfect and wonderful and I love it! I’m ready to get a”KALE SNOB” bumper sticker, ha ha (kidding!)…
Update: I tried whole wheat pasta about ten years ago, and it was so bad I couldn’t believe it. So the first few times I made this recipe I used whole grain pasta. Well… I broke down and had to try it again and it was FABULOUS! I bought the Whole Foods 365 brand, and it was out of this world. For those of you who are gluten sensitive – I have also made this recipe with brown rice pasta (Jovial brand – highly recommend!)… it was absolutely delicious. The only pasta I haven’t tried this with is regular white pasta… trying to do away with all the white (sugar, flour, pasta, etc.)… Good luck!
Ok, here it is… run out and buy the ingredients if you don’t already have! I’m excited to say, this is what’s for dinner tonight!
