Customize It Instructions

  • Meatlovers! If using shrimp or jumbo shrimp, pat dry and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Cook shrimp undisturbed until seared on one side, 2-3 minutes. Flip, and cook until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 1-2 minutes. If using diced chicken, pat dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Stir occasionallyly until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  1. 1

    Cook the Pasta

    Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 11-13 minutes. Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander and set aside. While pasta cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem kale and coarsely chop. Drain beans in a wire-mesh strainer and rinse.

  3. 3

    Cook The Kale and Beans

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add kale and a pinch of salt and stir occasionally until wilted, 2-3 minutes. Stir in beans and seasoned salt until warmed through and combined, 1-2 minutes. Transfer kale and beans to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Add cream to hot pan and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir in half the Parmesan, butter, and pesto until combined and butter is melted, 1-2 minutes. Add pasta, 2 Tbsp. pasta cooking water, kale, and beans and stir to combine. If too thick, add remaining pasta cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Remove from burner.
