Penne or farfalle pasta
2-3 tbs olive oil
1 small onion diced
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
½ lb chopped kale leaves
Salt and pepper
Cook pasta following directions. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in large pan over medium heat, add onions, and garlic, and cook until tender. Add the kale and saute until wilted. Drain the pasta and combine it with the onions, garlic, and kale. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
vegetables (onions, peppers, squash, kale, collards, spinach or whatever you have on hand)
oil or lard
milk or cottage cheese (optional)
cooked sausage, bacon, ground beef, etc (optional)
Preheat oven to 350
Heat oil in skillet. I prefer an iron skillet because I can transfer it directly to the oven to bake the quiche. If you don’t have an iron skillet, use what you have, but keep in mind you will need to transfer everything to an oven dish.
Saute the vegetables in the oil. While the veggies are cooking, in a separate bowl, whisk the eggs. Add milk and cottage cheese to the eggs, if desired. These will make the quiche “fluffier” and will make more (if you have kids who are going to gobble it up). The number of eggs you need will depend on whether or not you add milk or cottage cheese. You can also add grated cheese to this mixture.
Once your veggies are cooked, make sure there is still a little oil in the pan. Add the cooked meat and toss. Pour the egg mixture into the hot oiled skillet on top of the veggies and meat. Turn the temperature to low and allow the egg mixture to set for a moment.
Next, place your skillet in the oven and allow the quiche to finish cooking for about 20 minutes. Depending on the amount you have made, it may take a little longer. Generally the veggies and meats rise to the top of the quiche.
OPTIONAL PERSONALIZED MUFFIN METHOD
Pour the egg mixture into the muffin pan, then add the veggies and meats to each muffin.
