· A bunch of fresh Kale

· 2 Tbs. Onion powder

· 1 Tsp. Salt

· Nutritional yeast (optional)

1 Field Roast brand Italian sausage link (optional)

Boil the pasta in the normal manner according to instructions on package. While the pasta is boiling, fill a large skillet about ¼-1/3 with water heat the water to a low/medium temperature. Wash the kale and remove the leaves from the stalks.

If using the Field Roast vegan sausage, cook the link on low heat while boiling pasta and cut into slices when it is cooked.
