This recipe combines the heartiness and bite of the lacinato kale with the tartness of gorgonzola cheese for a flavor sensation.

I decided to try this recipe because I am tired of spaghetti sauce and pasta. This is a different version of pasta that I absolutely adored. It is very filling and the kale and gorgonzola is so good for you too. I will be making this one again.
