A perfectly simply and delicious sauce. I added some grilled chicken and served this over pasta. Super recipe!
Hearty tomato, kale, and mushroom pasta sauce (with grilled chicken) (from Fake Food Free blog)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 medium tomatoes, peeled
3 cloves garlic, minced
5 button mushrooms, chopped
2 cups kale, finely chopped
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 grilled boneless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
Heat the oil in the skillet, add the garlic. Add the tomatoes and the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes over medium heat.
Add the kale, stir to coat with any oil and the other ingredients. Add the water, place a lid on the skillet. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. The tomato should break down completely and the kale should be tender.
Remove the lid and stir in the sugar, balsamic vinegar, basil, oregano, salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, and the chicken. Cook for 1-2 minutes more and serve over pasta.
