Cooking Instructions

  1. Place the kale in colander in the sink. Cook the spaghetti according to package instructions. Reserve ½ cup pasta water, then drain the spaghetti over the kale to wilt it.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add shallots and cook, stirring, until they begin to soften, 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and dried thyme and cook, stirring, for an additional minute.
  4. To the skillet, add the heavy cream, feta, olives, and cook, stirring, until thoroughly heated and creamy, 2-3 minutes.
  5. Reduce heat to low and add the drained pasta, kale, and ¼ cup of the reserved pasta water. Toss to coat, adding more pasta water as needed to loosen the sauce.
  6. Serve immediately topped with crushed red pepper and black pepper.
