Ingredient Checklist
8 ounces whole-wheat rotini
2 cups water
2 cups low-sodium “no-chicken” broth or chicken broth
1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 ½ teaspoons Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
6 cups baby kale or baby spinach
½ cup slivered basil
Grated Parmesan cheese for garnish


Instructions Checklist
Step 1
Combine pasta, water, broth, tomatoes, oil, Italian seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and crushed red pepper in a large pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Uncover, reduce heat to medium-high and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes. Stir in kale and cook, stirring often, until most of the liquid has been absorbed, 5 to 7 minutes more. (If using spinach, add it after about 10 minutes, so it cooks in the remaining 2 to 3 minutes.) Stir in basil. Garnish with Parmesan, if desired.
