Kale Pesto & White Bean Ditalini

This pasta dish (which by the way can be served warm or cold) combines many things that I LOVE in one place. Kale, parmesan, basil, white beans, and pasta all come together to make seasonal perfection. And this homemade pesto is super affordable and freezes well, too. Hurray! Come join us!

About the Event

I LOVE pesto. The fresh flavor of fresh herbs combined with the richness of parmesan and nuts makes for the yummiest summer sauce that I anticipate each year.  But you know, the two most most common complaints I hear about pesto is that it can be too oily and too pricey. Honestly, I agree with both of those things...but it doesn't have to be that way! 

Uncomplicated Kitchen is here to show you a deliciousnutritious, and much more affordable alternative that will put pesto at the top of your seasonal favorites list. 

In this class, we're going to use some pantry staples like nuts/seeds, pasta, and beans plus our homemade kale pesto to make a nutritious, delicious, and fabulous pasta dish that I'm sure you'll love.

In just 60 minutes, we'll:

  • make a delicious and affordable kale pesto 
  • transform canned white beans into something that tastes like anything other than canned
  • learn how to use pasta water to create a silky sauce for our dish

So tie on your favorite apron and come make yummy things with us!  We'll have tons of fun and learn lots of culinary techniques along the way!

This class will be Thursday, July 18th from 5:30-6:30pm EST via Zoom. 

So go ahead and RSVP! I'll send you the list of tools and ingredients you'll need a few days before our class.  

And, as always, this class makes use of some items from your perfect pantry ingredients!

Our recipes are all pantry-centered because we believe that having certain essential ingredients on hand is key to successful home cooking. We combine these pantry basics - whole grains, herbs, spices, and/or legumes - with a few fresh ingredients to create simple, affordable, nutritious, and delicious recipes that anyone can make.
