Cooking all the ingredients in one pot certainly streamlines prep, cook and cleanup times. It also allows the starch from the pasta water to create a lovely, creamy sauce.


Uncooked whole wheat pasta

½ pound(s), linguini shape

Grape tomatoes

8 oz, halved

Uncooked red onion(s)

1 medium, sliced

Garlic clove(s)

3 clove(s), medium, thinly sliced

Fresh thyme

2 sprig(s)

Olive oil

4 tsp(s)

Table salt

1 tsp(s)

Crushed red pepper flakes

¼ tsp(s)


3½ cup(s)

Uncooked kale

6 cup(s), baby variety

Semisoft goat cheese

2 tbsp(s), crumbled

Grated Pecorino Romano cheese

2 tbsp(s)


  1. Combine pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, thyme, oil, salt, red pepper flakes and water in a large 12-inch deep skillet; bring to boil. Cook, stirring and turning pasta frequently with tongs, 6 minutes.
  2. Add kale, one third at a time, stirring until each batch is wilted. Boil, stirring, until pasta is al dente and cooking liquid thickens, about 3 minutes. Remove pan from heat; remove and discard thyme. Stir in goat cheese and pecorino until cheese is incorporated; serve.
