Baby Kale Pesto with Pasta is truly a delicious and healthy meal.  Pesto made with kale is somewhat milder than basil pesto in taste, but still tastes good while giving you a lot of nutritional value from the kale.

Being Italian, it was hard for me to imagine kale in a pesto.  I’ve used it to make kale chips, a kale salad, and even a kale and white bean soup. But putting kale in a pesto to use with pasta was something I just couldn’t imagine, especially since I love Italian Basil Pesto.
