Easiest Pasta Recipe Ever!


  • 2 Cups Pasta of Choice
  • 2 1/2 Cups Kale
  • 1/2 Cup Sun Dried Tomato
  • 1/2-3/4 Cup Reserved Cooking Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegan Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Tsp Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt, Separated
  • 1/2 Tsp Pepper, Separated


  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil, and cook your pasta according to package instructions.
  2. As your pasta is cooking, finely chop your kale, sun dried tomatoes and garlic. Bring a large sauté pan to medium heat and add your olive oil and garlic. Cook for 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Add in your kale, salt & pepper and let cook for 2-3 minutes. Turn off the heat and add in your sun dried tomatoes. Mix around and let stand.
  3. Right when your pasta is finished, reserve 3/4 cup pasta water. I usually place a bowl under my colander and when I drain the pasta the bowl will catch the reserved cooking water.
  4. Throw your cooked pasta into the sauté pan. Turn the saute pan on low heat. Add in the remaining ingredients and pour in the pasta water gradually. I like to use the whole 3/4 cup as it really helps make the sauce creamy. Stir well until everything is combined.
  5. Serve & Enjoy!
