I wanted to share this extremely easy pasta dish. It’s perfect for busy nights, yet still manages to taste luxurious.

  • 4-ounces gluten free pasta
  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter
  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free capers
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 1/2 cups kale, chopped
  • 1/2 cup vegan cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Cook pasta according to directions. Save 1/2 cup of water when the pasta is done cooking.
  2. In a medium sized frying pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and capers and cook for approximately 2 minutes.
  3. Add the pasta water, lemon zest, and kale to the pan. Cook until the kale is wilted.
