Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Add shrimp to pan during last 2 minutes of cooking. Drain pasta mixture in a colander over a bowl, reserving 2/3 cup pasta cooking liquid. Place pasta mixture in a bowl.
Place almonds, rind, kale, and garlic in the bowl of a food processor; pulse until finely chopped. Add reserved 2/3 cup pasta cooking liquid, salt, red pepper, black pepper, and 3 tablespoons cheese; pulse until smooth. With food processor running, pour oil through food chute in a slow, steady stream, processing until smooth.
Add kale mixture to pasta mixture; toss to coat. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons cheese.
Maybe I shouldn't review this because I used spinach instead of kale. My family hates kale. But otherwise, I stuck to the recipe (I only used 1/4 cup of water and it was plenty) and dinner was very tasty. Will make again.
