Tomato Kale Yumminess

2 bunches of dinosaur kale
6 cloves fresh garlic, chopped
1 lb pasta or 4 cups quinoa
1 large jar tomato sauce or two large cans diced tomatoes
1 chili pepper, crushed or 1 tsp chili powder
olive oil to taste (optional)
chevre goat, feta or parmesean cheese (optional)

Clean the kale and chop into pieces small enough to bite. Steam with garlic (and 1 tsp olive oil, optional) until it cooks down. In other pot, make the pasta or quiona (according to the direcitons on their package). Add diced tomatoes or sauce to kale. Add chili pepper. Stir on a low heat. Add pasta or quinoa. Stir. This dish can be made 1 or 2 days in advance, be refrigerated, and served hot or cold. I put the cheese on the side a special optional add-in. It is a delicious healthy meal - and virtually fat-free without the olive oil or goat cheese. Also, all ingredients are easily available as organic. Enjoy!
