I have so much kale in my garden, and I can only do so much with it. This recipe just combines kale pesto with a homemade Alfredo, which was an experiment that turned out wonderfully. Put it on bread or pasta, or freeze it in cubes and use it to complement chicken, steak, or veggies.

I love this use of kale. Something different than the normal. I added extra salt at the end since the cheese didn't add enough. It is a thicker recipe so I might add more milk to loosen it up a bit more. I served it over noodles and pork. Great rich flavors. Read More
