A note about serious food allergies

We've heard the nasty rumors about kale for years (thinks she's better than us, taking hardworking lettuces' jobs in salads), and we don’t believe a word: kale's been nothing but good to us. It's great here, healthy and with a slight bitter taste, adding to the earthy, meaty mushrooms and rich tortellini. Reputation means nothing; flavor is everything. Tip: This recipe has a shallot, which sometimes is rough to mince. Easiest way to mince shallot? Make thin slices lengthwise, then slices across, resulting in minced shallot.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |

Customize It Instructions

  • Meat lovers! If using protein, cook before mushrooms in Step 3. If using diced chicken, pat dry and season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. Remove to a plate. If using scallops, pat dry and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until scallops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 1-2 minutes per side. Remove to a plate. If using flank steak, separate, pat dry, and season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally until no pink remains, 4-6 minutes. Remove to a plate. Add proteins to pan with tortellini in Step 4.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel and mince shallot. Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices. Stem kale and coarsely chop. Mince garlic.

  2. 2

    Cook the Tortellini

    Once water is boiling, add tortellini and cook until al dente, 3-4 minutes. Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander and set aside.

  3. 3

    Start the Sauce

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and mushrooms to hot pan and cook undisturbed, 3 minutes. Stir in kale and ¼ tsp. salt. Stir occasionally until wilted, 3-4 minutes. Stir in shallot, garlic, and seasoning blend until combined, 30-60 seconds. Add half the pasta cooking water and cream. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, stir occasionally until thickened, 2-3 minutes.

  4. 4

    Finish the Sauce

    Add tortellini and Parmesan to pan. Stir until Parmesan melts and sauce coats pasta, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner. If too thick, add remaining pasta cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish
