  • Makes: 4 servings
    Serving Size: 1 1/4 cups
  • Active Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces whole-wheat rotini
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups low-sodium “no-chicken” broth or chicken broth
  • 1 15-ounce can no-salt-added diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1½ teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 6 cups baby kale or baby spinach
  • ½ cup slivered basil
  • Grated Parmesan cheese for garnish

Recipe Steps:

  1. Combine pasta, water, broth, tomatoes, oil, Italian seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and crushed red pepper in a large pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Uncover, reduce heat to medium-high and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes. Stir in kale and cook, stirring often, until most of the liquid has been absorbed, 5 to 7 minutes more. (If using spinach, add it after about 10 minutes, so it cooks in the remaining 2 to 3 minutes.) Stir in basil. Garnish with Parmesan, if desired.
