    I have spent my whole life without fruits and veggies and at 28 I am a recent convert to a new way of eating. Ive been vegging out and this was awesome! Fun to make, rewarding to the taste and healthy for the mind and body. This was the fist time eating kale and I used a very generous amount! I wasnt sure how the small can of white beans would take but it really balances out the flavor, so good! I also added some fresh cut skinless tomato chunks to the final plate. The parmasean was a perfect finishing touch. Very good!

    this is an awesome recipe if you have left over beans and peppers : ) i was also trying to incorporate kale, which is in season right now. i was actually surprised by how good it turned out. used wide udon noodles and didnt add cheese, lemon or pepper (still delicious!). its also pretty to look at and really healthy for ya (i think) : ) thank you for the recipe!

    One of the best white bean and kale recipes I've found. I even added a few shrimp. The lemon juice may have been the secret ingredient that moves this from ok to outstanding.

    I really enjoyed this recipe. I made it as written - and ended up eating it as the main course because it was so good.

    I've tried many recipes for white bean and kale pasta. This one is really good. It's also beautiful because of the peppers, which add a nice color. Will definitely make it again.
