MY RECIPES 1 - Kale Puttanesca Style Side Dish - Original recipe, recipes and video

Recipe is for two side dishes but I ate it all!!

Dinner!! My original recipe.
Lemon Pepper Chicken Breast (Sprinkle breast with lemon-pepper seasoning)

WITH (My original recipe)
Kale Puttanesca Style Side Dish
Saute 1 minced garlic clove, 4-6 drained capers and 1/4 cup chopped onion.  (Real puttanesca included anchovies and canned tomatoes but I did my own variation).

In another pot cook 1/4 to 1/2 cup dried mini farfalle until al dente.

If the kale leaves are big, remove the stems before you cut into bite-sized pieces across the grain. Saute kale until bright green in pan with garlic, capers and onion.

Add 3-5 TBSN tomato paste from the tube, 1 TBSN puttanesca*(Urban Accents  seasoning.**) and 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes.  At end of cooking add packaged Hormel pepper bits, sliced black olives.  Drizzle a little red wine or balsamic vinegar on it.  Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

The above come in a kit together at Amazon. 

*Couldn't find a dry spice recipe for puttanesca on-line.  The Urban Accents Accents package ingredients are as follows:  
  • onion
  • garlic
  • tomato 
  • bell pepper 
  • parsley
  • sea salt
  • oregano
  • black pepper
  • rosemary
  • basil
  • sugar
  • citric acid
  • other
  • Of course I don't have the amounts for the above ingredients to make a spice from scratch. I tried to find one but all I can only find were recipes for puttanesca sauce not a spice mix. 

**You can find the product on (package of three - see above and (one packet) but couldn't find on
