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 variety

grape tomatoes

8 oz, halved

uncooked red onion(s)

1 medium, sliced

garlic clove(s)

3 medium clove(s), thinly sliced

fresh thyme

2 sprig(s)

olive oil

4 tsp

table salt

1 tsp

red pepper flakes

¼ tsp


3½ cup(s)

uncooked kale

6 cup(s), baby variety

soft-type goat cheese

2 Tbsp, crumbled

grated Pecorino cheese

2 Tbsp


  1. Combine pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, thyme, oil, salt, red pepper flakes and water in a large 12-inch deep skillet; bring to a 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 combined; serve.
