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. She's great here, healthy and with a slightly bitter taste, adding to the earthy, meaty mushrooms and rich tortellini. Reputation means nothing; the flavor is everything. Tip: This recipe has a shallot, which sometimes is rough to mince. The easiest way to mince shallot? Make thin slices lengthwise, then slices across, resulting in minced shallot.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

Meatlovers! If using proteins, cook in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add to pasta as desired. If using shrimp, pat dry and cook with 2 tsp. olive oil until opaque and shrimp reach minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side. If using steak strips, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally with 2 tsp. olive oil until no pink remains and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. If using chicken breasts, pat dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1" dice. Season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally with 2 tsp. olive oil until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using Impossible burger, cook with 2 tsp. olive oil, breaking into smaller pieces, until heated through, 5-7 minutes.
Prepare the Ingredients
Peel and mince shallot.
Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices.
Stem kale and coarsely chop.
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.
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.
Add kale, then stir occasionally until wilted, 3-4 minutes.
Add shallot, garlic, and seasoned salt. Stir until combined, 30-60 seconds.
Stir in half the pasta cooking water and cream. Bring to a simmer.
Finish the Sauce
Once simmering, add tortellini and Parmesan to hot 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.
