Whole-Wheat pasta with Kale and chopped apples.

This dish is quite fulling. The apples give it a little crunch. Chopped walnuts would be a nice little topper as well.

6 garlic cloves, chopped.
1 granny smith apple, chopped.
1 (1 pound) kale, thick stems trimmed, leaves coarsely chopped
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
2 cups vegetable broth
1 pound whole-wheat spaghetti
1/2 cup coarsely grated fontina cheese, plus more for serving
Cook garlic in skillet over medium heat until golden, stirring frequently, 2 minutes. Add half the kale; cook, tossing until just wilted, 2 minutes. Add remaining kale, apples and season with salt and pepper; cook, tossing until all the kale has wilted, 2 minutes. Add broth, and simmer until kale is tender, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente, according to package instructions. Drain, reserving 1 cup cooking water. Return pasta to pot. Add kale and fontina; toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Add reserved cooking water as desired. Divide pasta among plates; top with more cheese.
Herb Biscuits
I also used fresh thyme and sage. Any combo will do.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, fresh chives, baking powder, and salt. Using a fork or your fingers, work in butter (cut into small pieces) until small pea-size clumps form. Mix in milk until the mixture comes together as a sticky dough.
Using a 1/3-cup measure, drop 8 mounds of dough onto a nonstick baking sheet; pat down slightly.
Bake until biscuits are golden brown, rotating baking sheet halfway through, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Yum! I tried this pasta dish tonight because I bought some kale for something that didn't end up working out, and this is a great recipe! So flavorful and so healthy, I'll have to make it again!
