Meat Lite: Spaghetti with Tomato-Braised Kale
Everyone loves a plate of pasta, but most pasta preparations are more comforting than nutritious, usually calling for more than the recommended 2 ounce serving of pasta. This recipe is half spaghetti and half hearty kale sliced into spaghetti-like ribbons. A tiny amount of pancetta lends good flavor to the greens, and wine and tomato make for a familiar sauce that complements both the pasta and the kale. It's a soul-satisfying plate of spaghetti that doesn't overload you on carbs or make you feel like you're watching them.
