A note about serious food allergies

Comfort pasta can be more than just something you threw together out of the contents of your refrigerator. (Not that there's anything wrong with that; desperation can bring inspiration!) But here, pork, sun-dried tomato, and healthy kale combine for something that adds up beyond the sum of its parts.
