Pasta with Kale and Garlic

This dinner was adapted from an old Weight Watchers recipe. I had pasta, I had general, I am a huge WW devotee (lost 57 lbs and then the baby weight later). Their recipes can be time consuming, but are healthy and tasty.

Pasta with Kale and Garlic
8 oz dry pasta, cooked (save 1/2 cup pasta water): 0.38
1 14-oz can diced tomatoes: 0.60
6 cloves garlic, chopped: 0.20
2 small red onions, thinly sliced: 0.70
1 T olive oil: 0.12
1 bunch kale, chopped: 0.99
1/4 c. grated parmesan: 0.42
salt and pepper to taste

Total: $3.41 for 4-6 servings

Heat oil in nonstick skillet. Saute onions until golden, 8-12 min. Add kale and garlic, saute until kale is soft, about 1 min. Add 1/2 cup water, reduce heat, cover, and cook until kale is cooked, about 8 min.

Add tomatoes, pasta water, salt & pepper. Cook a few minutes until thickened (depends on how much liquid are in your tomatoes). Add cooked pasta & cheese. Stir. Serve.
